Our flagship programme, Jolly Phonics, teaches children to read and write using synthetic phonics, which is widely recognised as the most effective way to teach children to read and write in English. That was over 25 years ago. Since then our immense progress has been studied in numerous research projects, the results of which led to phonics becoming central to the UK curriculum. Today we are now used in over 100 countries worldwide.
Using a synthetic phonics approach, Jolly Phonics teaches children the five key skills for reading and writing. Complimented by Jolly Readers and Jolly Grammar, it provides a thorough foundation for teaching literacy over three years in school.As the leading synthetic phonics publisher, and the most experienced, teaches not only phonics, but spelling, punctuation and grammar too.
Research indicates the early introduction of literacy gives children a flying start to their education. The Jolly Phonics approach is widely considered one of the most effective way to teach children how to read and write in English.
