Monster Phonics

At Cooperative Education East (CEE) we have made the exciting move to follow the Monster Phonics DfE approved phonics scheme.  Monster Phonics is a rigorous, systematic synthetic programme which will help us to develop fluency, vocabulary and comprehension skills. By combining the technical skills needed to read alongside an enjoyment of and in reading we want children to possess a love of reading.


We know that children learn best when parents/carers and teachers follow the same methods. Working in the same way is vital for reinforcing learning. For this reason, we share information with our parents about the structure of our phonics lessons, the content taught and ways parents and carers can support their children at home.

Our Approach and Structure

At the start of EYFS children access the Phase 1 module of ‘Letters and Sounds’. This is a vital starting point allowing children to practice the listening skills needed for segmenting and bending in their reading and writing.
