About these courses

Some of our most popular courses, our P1 course incorporates good practice from the ‘Letters and Sounds’ and ‘Jolly Phonics’ programmes to create a multi-sensory learning experience. This course is aimed at children attending P1. Your child will learn through a range of fun and multi-sensory activities to help them remember the sounds and to combine them together to make age-appropriate words and to build sentences. Our course is taught by highly experienced British Council teachers trained in teaching Phonics.

On these courses, your child will learn: 

  • the 42 letter sounds
  • handwriting skills and letter formation
  • how to combine sounds to make words
  • how to identify sounds in words and segment them to spell
  • tricky words – words that cannot be decoded using phonics
  • alternative spelling – different spellings that are pronounced the same way
  • to write what they can say.

After completing our series of Phonics courses, your child will acquire the phonics skills and be able to read and write based on the sounds.
