Information for Parents/Carers


We understand that readers develop in different ways. Some children will need additional support to enable them to become confident and fluent readers. Where children may need extra support to decode and access texts, additional phonics interventions are in place in school.

At Anston Park Junior School, phonics teaching is based on Letters and Sounds. This builds upon the phonics teaching in the Infant school.  

You can find resources to use at home by going back to the phonics menu and selecting the phase that your child is currently working on. If you have any questions, please do contact your child's class teacher.


You can find further information about Letters and Sounds by clicking the image below:


You can find out more about understanding phonics by visiting the Oxford Owl website below. 


If your child is working on one of the phonics phases, you might hear lots of words being used to explain their progress and targets. Below is a useful glossary of some of the key words.
