At Aboyne Lodge, children learn phonics throughout Early Years and Key Stage 1. It is taught daily, in short sessions so that children build up and practise the skills they need to use in reading and writing.

We follow the government published programme “Letters and Sounds” using a range of resources which support us in providing a multi-sensory approach to learning phonics.

For more details about what phonics is, how we teach it at Aboyne Lodge and for ways you can help your child, click on the link below:



Please see below the Aboyne Lodge Phonics Guidance for 2020.


UPDATE – November 2020

Year 1 children usually take the phonics screening check in early June. However, due to school closures the check did not take place this year. Instead, schools are required to use a past version of the check with Year 2 pupils in November or December 2020.

We have put together a phonic screening information pack, this includes a parent’s guide to phonics and resources to support your child. To access these please click on the link below.
