What is it?
Bug Club Phonics is one of the DfE’s approved phonics teaching programmes and aims to help all children in your school learn to read by the age of six, in a fun and accessible way. Following the order of Letters and Sounds, Bug Club Phonics matches the National Curriculum and Early Learning Goals.
Following the recent disruption in learning, we know you’ll be planning to fit ‘catchup’ into your existing phonics lessons as you continue teaching content for the coming year. Bug Club Phonics is here to help.
Encourage your young readers to continue developing their reading skills with beautiful artwork, humour, lovable characters, and books and topics they really want to read.
The Bug Club Phonics programme comprises 134 fully decodable readers and features on the validated SSP programme list provided by the Department for Education for teaching systematic, synthetic phonics, available for English Hubs funding.
Following the order of Letters and Sounds, Bug Club Phonics provides comprehensive lesson plans with embedded assessment and consolidation.
In addition to end of unit and phase summative assessments, appropriate and informal assessment opportunities are offered in the daily lessons and through fun games in the online world.
With online reading games, worksheets for writing practice and books and eBooks to read, there’s plenty for your children to enjoy independently.
Have confidence in a reading programme that meets the Ofsted Framework guidance and provides a blend of print and digital resources to help ensure your pupils close any gaps in their phonics and early language development.
