Phonics and Reading


Monster Phonics is a DfE validated systematic synthetic phonics programme.

Monster Phonics is child-centred and improves results. Children make progress because the approach is meaningful, interactive, and easy to understand, creating high engagement. The systematic colour-coding of graphemes linked to phoneme monsters makes phonics easier to understand. Children also love the monsters, and this brings phonics to life. Our activities are multisensory requiring reading, writing, singing and actions. Typically, schools that fully embed Monster Phonics increase phonics screening scores by 15% points in the first year. Studies also show a 23-month improvement in reading age over a 5-month period. These gains can be attributed to the child-centred systematic phonics teaching that underpins Monster Phonics


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.


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.

Monster Phonics Day 2022

On Thursday 17th March, we had an exciting day  to celebrate our launch of Monster Phonics across the school.

Each class from Nursery to Year 6 came to come school dressed as a monster from the scheme or in one of their colours.

Our staff were busy planning activities for the day to ensure our phonics are memorable and exciting.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and the experience of being fully immersed in their learning.

Here are a selection of photographs from the day.
