At Surrey Street Primary School, we use a teaching scheme called 'Rocket Phonics' to teach Systematic Synthetic Phonics (SSP), in order to help children to read, write and spell.



Rocket Phonics is a Systematic Synthetic Phonics programme that supports your child to learn all the skills needed to successfully read, write and spell.

Within the programme, there are lots of resources such as flashcards, sound mats, online interactive Big Books and quizzes to help develop learning further.  There is also a fully matched series of decodable reading books from a variety of genres.



The sounds are grouped into colour bands, relating to the colour books that your child will be able to read as they explore new letter-sounds.
