Pure Sound Phonics

We teach children to read by blending sounds and write by segmenting sounds.


Blending  means combining sounds to make a word. Divide the word into the individual sounds. For example /s/ /i/ /t/


Segmenting means using knowledge of sounds to break it down to /p/ /i/ /n/ in order to write the word.



Below are some high frequency words and tricky words which children are to learn to read onsight

Foundation C enjoying World Book Day!

Foundation A enjoyed coming to school dressed as their favourite characters from a book. We brought our stories in to share with our friends and Miss Allen has also kept some to share during story time next week. 

Foundation A tasted different fruits and vegetables. We were very adventurous and even tried some which we hadn’t had before.

16.01.20 The children have been thinking about what jobs they would like do when they grow up. They came to school dressed for the world of work. Here is Foundation B ready to get busy!

Before Christmas lots of our grown ups came to join us for our Christmas Activity Day! FB were very busy and had great festive fun. Thank you to everyone who came and joined in with us!

13.12.19 Foundation B have been very creative today! Harrison has drawn an elf and Zoya and Musa have made penguins! Musa has also drawn an incredible picture of Batman, Robin and the Joker!

Finally, at the beginning of this week we performed our Christmas concert. We all tried our hardest and did excellent singing! We really enjoyed taking part.

Then we visited St. Cuthbert's Church. Reverend Karen explained the important parts of a church to us, and told us the Christmas story. She also played the organ for us and we sang her one of our Christmas songs.

It has been a busy few weeks in Foundation B! First we had our Enterprise Christmas Fair, where we made and sold reindeer candy canes.

Foundation B took inspiration from Mr Adventure and chose their own ways to show their learning about houses. You can watch the story below!

Mr Adventure

15.11.19 Foundation A chose to represent houses in a variety of different ways, just like Mr Adventure! We linked our learning to Characteristics of Effective Learning. Take a look at the different ways we chose to represent our learning. 

17.10.19 Foundation B learnt about the Jewish festival Sukkot. We built our own sukkahs.

Foundation A celebrate anti bullying week 12.11.19

We celebrated anti-bullying week by wearing our odd socks to school! 

The children shared ideas of one small change they could make to ensure that our school is a happy place to be and we wrote these down in the form of a pledge. 


We have displayed this pledge in our Foundation Unit as a reminder for us to always be a kind friend. Here are some of the ideas the children had: 


Rayya "make sure no one is left out when you are playing" 


Nimra "if someone is upset, ask them if they want to play"


Sky "ask people to play with you"


Jack "include everyone in your game"
