East Preston Infant School


We have adopted the Monster Phonics DfE validated scheme as the method through which children are taught phonics and spelling.

Monster Phonics uses grapheme-phoneme correspondence as the first and foremost approach. Teaching is supported by using colour and monster sound cues to make the grapheme-phoneme correspondence explicit and easier to learn. Directly linking each grapheme and sounds within words makes learning easier and fun. Once a grapheme has been taught, the colour is removed. Not only does this accelerates the learning of phonics, high-frequency words, including common exception words, are also easier to learn.
