Welcome to Active Phonics
An engaging alternative Phonics Learning Strategy for children of all ages
Active Phonics is a highly engaging multi-sensory fusion of phonics and Physical Education. It has been developed in an outstanding EBD special school as a means to address the needs of our most reluctant of readers.
Active Phonics allows systematic synthetic phonics to be taught in a fun and engaging way – a simple concept that addresses many of the educational, social and emotional needs of our pupils.
The programme has been highly successful in engaging the most reluctant of readers and improving the literacy grades of pupils taking part. It was one of the winners of the Let Teacher’s Shine 2013 competition to find innovative projects to raise attainment among disadvantaged students.
