The NSW Department of Education’s Literacy and Numeracy priorities emphasise the importance of explicit and systematic teaching of phonics within the early years, with professional learning emphasising phonics and support for teachers in Literacy. This approach is sometimes known as Synthetic Phonics. The purchase of decodable readers will provide the resources to further support students becoming effective readers.
The intention is to provide every school in NSW with Kindergarten enrolments with resources to support the Department of Education’s messaging around the explicit teaching of phonics. These readers will be identified in professional learning for schools and teachers to support quality teaching.
