Invigorate your phonics teaching with Song of Sounds, a creative, engaging phonics programme that meets the diverse learning needs of your class!


What is Song of Sounds? 

Song of Sounds is a systematic, synthetic phonics programme which runs from EYFS to Year 2.  The programme teaches children to read and write by introducing children to the sounds that they can hear in words (phonemes) and their written equivalent (graphemes).

Children learn to blend sounds together to read words and segment words in order to spell them.

Song of Sounds is also a multi-sensory phonics programme. It is hands on and interactive with music, movement and practical activities at its core, to ensure children enjoy the phonics learning process.  The programme ensures that children become fluent readers and knowledgeable spellers by the end of Key Stage 1.
