This text supports trainee teachers working towards primary QTS through the exploration of a range of aspects of phonics teaching. It gives a balance of research and practice and allows trainees to develop and in-depth understanding of what works in phonics teaching, and why.

The title includes a review of different popular phonics programmes, set against the DfE (2011) criteria for high-quality phonics teaching. This third edition has been updated in line with changes in primary education. A new section includes classroom case studies and lesson ideas for teachers to learn about best practice from other teachers.
