This book is an essential guide for all primary trainees and teachers. The text addresses the specifics of teaching English in the early years and importantly places systematic synthetic phonics within the context of early English as a whole. The book starts by examining the fundamental role of communication and language in laying the foundations for literacy development. It explores the importance of early sound discrimination, rhyme, alliteration, oral blending, and oral segmentation, as well as the importance of developing children's visual discrimination skills. The text critically examines the role of systematic synthetic phonics as an approach for teaching children to read, and its application in both reading and writing is fully covered. Other key chapters include literacy through the wider learning environment, supporting children with literacy difficulties, and assessing English in the early years.
