Phonics - Letters and Sounds

Letters and sounds is the programme we follow at Barry Primary to support the principles and practice of high quality phonics.

The link below will take you to a video to support pronunciation of the pure sounds we use.


“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – Dr. Seuss

We love books here at Barry Primary. However, just as much as reading them, we love sharing and talking about the adventures that they take us on and the incredible things that we learn.

We know that talking about the wonderful and interesting things that we read helps us to develop a wider vocabulary and have a better understanding of the world (and other worlds!)  around us. This is why, books and talking are at the centre of our English curriculum.

"So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install a lovely bookshelf on the wall." – Roald Dahl

“I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.” – Roald Dahl
