What is Jolly Phonics?

Jolly Phonics is a fun and child centred approach to teaching literacy. With actions for each of the 42 letter sounds, the multi-sensory method is very motivating for children and teachers, who can see their students achieve. The letter sounds are split into seven groups as shown below.

Letter Sound Order

The sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically). This enables children to begin building words as early as possible.

How does Jolly Phonics work?

Using a synthetic phonics approach, Jolly Phonics teaches children the five key skills for reading and writing. Complemented by Jolly Readers and Jolly Grammar, it provides a thorough foundation for teaching literacy over three years in school.

The five skills taught in Jolly Phonics

Learning the letter sounds

Children are taught the 42 main letter sounds. This includes alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue.

  • Learning letter formation

  • Using different multi-sensory methods, children learn how to form and write the letters.
  • Blending
  • Children are taught how to blend the sounds together to read and write new words.
  • Identifying the sounds in words
  • Listening for the sounds in words gives children the best start for improving spelling.
  • Tricky words
  • Tricky words have irregular spellings and children learn these separately.
