Supporting your Child

On this page, you will find resources to help you support your child in their learning and development.


At St Ann's Well Academy, we teach the use of Synthetic Phonics as the prime method for decoding text. We model the sounds that letters and groups of letter make using what are called pure sounds. To help you use the same sounds at home as we do in school, you can hear the correct sound/letter combinations on this video, Sounds of the English Phonics Code (Youtube video).
