AISB Jolly Phonics Workshop - 14th November 2020


What is Jolly Phonics?


Jolly Phonics is a synthetic phonics program that teaches reading and writing via sound to letter correspondence.


As a multi-sensory program, Jolly Phonics uses a combination of senses to teach reading and writing. The sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically) which enables children to begin building words as early as possible.


What are the benefits of Jolly Phonics?


Children learn to read and write at a faster and more meaningful rate. They learn that letters have individual sounds and when those sounds are blended together, they become words.


As an example, a Year 1 class might learn a letter sound every day. along with an action for the sound and a song for the sound.  Children do not just learn the sound in isolation, they also have a specific action and a song to help them remember and they learn the correct letter formation at the same time.
