Phonics Letters and Sounds
Synthetic phonics using the 2007 Letters and Sounds framework is a widely used approach to phonics teaching. All of the schemes highlighted below are fully decodable and have been designed for use when teaching Letters and Sounds.
Please note: the DfE are bringing in some changes that will impact the teaching of phonics in many schools, and the phonics books that are likely to be required in 2021/22. One key change is the removal of the 2007 Letters and Sounds framework from the DfE's validated list of phonics programmes. Many schools are already teaching phonics successfully using the Letters and Sounds framework, and these schools may continue to use it and the resources they have invested in, as long as they are taking an approach that is rigorous, systematic, used with fidelity and achieves strong results for all pupils.
