Synopsis

Teaching Systematic Synthetic Phonics in Primary Schools by Wendy Jolliffe, David Waugh, Angela Carss

Systematic synthetic phonics is a key strategy in the teaching of reading. This text supports trainee teachers working towards primary QTS in how to use phonics effectively. It explores what works in phonics teaching, and why. It begins with the subject knowledge that underpins effective teaching and goes on to explore pedagogy from the early years to Key Stage 2. The book includes a review of different popular phonics programmes, set against the DfE (2011) criteria for high-quality phonics teaching. This second edition has been updated in line with the new National Curriculum, includes new guidance on the Year 1 phonics screening check and new lessons ideas and practical guidance for teaching phonics.

Reviews

I found the information on the pedagogy of phonics, especially teaching phonics in KS2, very useful. I enjoyed reading about how and why to teach phonics in KS2 as this is something which I think is overlooked in many other phonics books. Another positive point is that this book has activity ideas incorporated in the chapters. This really puts the information into perspective
