Actiphons deliver a unique approach to inspiring children to learn their Phonics whilst at the same time encouraging them to try a variety of sports and fun physical activities. Its these experiences which help the children reinforce the letters and sounds found throughout the 5 Phonic Phases. Dependent on the developmental stage the children are at we have the following offering:
Phase 1- Covers the 7 different aspects as outlined in the Governments- Letters & Sounds programme
Phase 2- 23 letters & sounds introduced for blending & segmenting with letters all following the SATPIN sequence
Phase 3- A further 27 grapheme combinations many of which are made up of 2 letters for example “sh” in Shotput Sheena
Phase 4- Reinforcement of the letters & sounds covered in phases 2 and 3 focusing on implementing these different grapheme combinataions into writing
Phase 5- The last 19 grapheme combinations are introduced all of which are made up of 2 letters for example “ay” in Playing Faye and “ie” Vie Lie

To ensure the Actiphons programme is delivered to its optimum potential, only licensed practitioners are allowed to deliver the sessions once they have attended an Actiphons accreditation course.
We also firmly believe "home learning" is a key aspect of a child's development so we include a FREE "Parents Briefing Session" within our programme which outlines in detail how parents can utilise aspects of the Actiphons programme at home to improve their childrens phonics and physical development.
If you belive the Actiphons programme would be of benefit to your setting there are a variety of ways to get involved:
To get the most out of the Actiphons programme you can train up each member of staff so you can fully immerse your setting, allowing the children to PLAY, LEARN & EXERCISE each and every day of the week.
For settings wishing one of our Trained Teachers to deliver the Actiphons Programme all you need to provide are the children and the space. We will do the rest. You just need to choose the appropriate Phase.
Our training goes towards enhancing each member of staffs CPD and gives them more confidence in the niche environment which Phonics & Physical Education entails.
Alternatively you can just purchase some of the many resources via our SHOP and commence delivery immediately.
