Foundation Phase Literacy (3-7 year olds)

In the Foundation Phase emphasis is placed on developing children’s communication skills. These are very important skills if children are to become successful learners in the future and are essential as the foundation for reading and writing.

'Jolly Phonics' is used at Ysgol Y Faenol to introduce children to the 'synthetics phonics'  method of learning the letter sounds. 'Jolly Phonics' helps us teach the letter sounds in a way that is fun and multi-sensory. Children learn how to use the letter sounds to read and write words. Please see the 'Parent Guide to Jolly Phonics' below for more detailed information.
