What will your child be learning at Boutcher?

At Boutcher Phonics is taught daily throughout the Early Years and Key Stage One.


Children then continuously build and apply this phonic knowledge throughout Key Stage 2. We teach phonics through the songs from the Jolly Phonics scheme, from Phase 4 we follow the Letters and Sounds scheme from DfE Publications.

Phase 1 is taught throughout nursery and consists of children being given the opportunity to develop speaking and listening skills. This is developed at the beginning of Reception.



In Reception children are taught:

Phase 1 and 2 – Autumn Term

Phase 3 – Spring and Summer Term



In Year One children are taught:

Phase 3 recap – Autumn Term

Phase 4 – Spring Term

Phase 5-Summer Term

In Year One Summer Term children will also be taking the Phonics Check.



In Year Two children are taught:


Re-cap of Phase 5 – Autumn Term

Phase 6 – Spring and Summer Term

Reading Schemes: across Reception and Key Stage 1 we use the Oxford Reading Tree schemes.
