Red Rose Letters and Sounds

The Primary English and Literacy Team at Lancashire Professional Development Service (LPDS) are excited to announce that they have developed a new systematic, synthetic phonics planning programme using the Letters and Sounds approach titled Red Rose Letters and Sounds.

This planning programme has been developed, continuously evaluated and refined over several years, using the expertise of effective classroom practitioners and phonics experts at LPDS, in order to provide a tightly focused systematic approach to planning and teaching phonics.

The programme includes planning from Phase Two to Phase Five with specific daily sessions and a very rigorous approach to meet, and exceed, expectations based on the Early Learning Goals and the National Curriculum for Year One.

This practical full day course will demonstrate how the explicit teaching and learning of phonic skills, underpinned by a carefully considered termly progression, can support children to be enthusiastic readers and writers.

Participants will leave with a comprehensive understanding of planning, teaching and assessing phonics using Red Rose Letters and Sounds, a firm understanding of the pedagogy, and will be motivated by the belief that teaching with this programme is achievable and will improve outcomes for children.
