After February half term 2022 we will begin to implement phonics using the MONSTER PHONICS scheme in Terrific Tigers and Marvellous Meerkats classes. 



Monster Phonics is the DfE validated child-centred phonics programme that rapidly improves results. Children make progress because the approach is meaningful, interactive, and easy to understand, creating high engagement.

Who is it for?

Monster Phonics is a whole-class Systematic Synthetic Phonics Scheme with Decodable Books for children in Reception and Key Stage 1. It is also used as an intervention in Key Stages 1 and 2.


Monster Phonics teaches children to read by enabling them to identify the individual graphemes (letter combinations) and blend the sounds (phonemes) together to read the word. It is a fun way to teach phonics, since it is multi-sensory. Sounds are categorised into ten colour groups, and each colour has a corresponding monster character. Monster Phonics is a highly advanced multisensory scheme. This creates interest and engagement from the children.

  • Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
  • Decodable books aligned to the programme. Guided reading sets and eBooks.
  • 26 online module Training Programme which includes 4 meetings in the first year with an assigned experienced trainer.
  • Intervention for every learning objective to keep up and not catch up
  • Letter formation and handwriting for every grapheme
  • Parent logins and phonics webinars
