    I am doing a review of phonics schemes for my school. I've been trying to find a range of programmes but I am getting a lot of resources for parents rather than schools.. can anyone recommend what to search for or any sites that give an overview? Thanks

    We use Letters and Sounds. I've never actually used it myself as I've been KS2 based for many years now, but EYFS and KS1 seem happy with it.

    We use RWI and it's fab for phonics.
    Wouldn't use it for everything else though.

    thanks everyone! I'm trying to find something with more engagement than rwi. Just wondered what to search to get a breadth of programmes. Looking for a programme that's really exciting for children

    Monster phonics has been great in my daughter’s school. Sounds are colour coded and have a character.

    Hello, did you adopt Monster Phonics we are looking into it at our school, it would be good to have some feedback other than just the ones on their website!

    On supply, one of the infant schools has introduced TTS story time phonics. Only started in September but the Y1s I was teaching were very engaged and really enjoyed it. I like the key sentence for each sound.

    We use Letters and Sounds and then the resources from PhonicsPlay. There are daily planned sessions and the Phases are colour coded. The games are engaging and some can be played at home for free.
    I am also investigating Alphablocks (but I think it only goes up to the end of single sounds at the start of Phase 3)

    Is there a specific scheme for teaching phonics which all teachers and schools follow or do schools just choose a scheme/learning programme which works for them? Trying to locate a phonics teaching scheme which most schools follow.
