English Jolly Phonics Program
Phonics is absolutely essential for helping children learn to read. Once the code of reading has been cracked through phonics, children will then have the ability to explore the length and breadth of literacy as a whole. Jolly Phonics has proven time and again to be the most effective way to get children reading early. It is a fun and child centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics.

To begin with, children are taught the 42 main letter sounds (including alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue) with actions for each sound. Using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to speak and write the letters. This method is very motivating for teachers and children, who can see results in a short time.
