As of October 2021, Rood End will no longer be using the Letters and Sounds programme to teach Phonics within school. We have recently invested in a new systematic, synthetic phonics programme called 'Rocket Phonics'. This new resource has been written by phonics experts and will support us in teaching our pupils with their early reading and writing skills. Pupils will be given full online access to the programme which will enable teachers to assign eBooks. The eBooks will then be able to be read at school or home on any internet-enabled device.
