Sounds in Focus is a whole-school spelling and language programme.

Use Sounds in Focus to develop language proficiency by continually developing:
  • spelling skills
  • vocabulary
  • grammar concepts
  • writing
With the Teacher Guide for 1st Class, Teachers are provided with everything they need to implement Sounds in Focus, including:
  • a comprehensive weekly programme;
  • explicit teaching directions;
  • Pupil Book answers;
  • ideas for consolidation and differentiation games and activities;
  • chants and actions; and
  • hints, tips and explanations for implementing the programme

    I really liked this programme and though I am not a big fan of textbooks I found the textbook was particular useful to assess where the child might be struggling. I really like the way it runs from Junior Infants up to 6th Class as a consistent approach to literacy will only benefit the students. I loved the resources that came with it online and they were used every day for literacy stations. The students worked very well with this approach with sounds, list and special words being remembered and used. The assessment tests will be ideal for my class towards the end of the year and also for ongoing assessment in your literacy lessons. If your school is using Jolly Phonics or a similar programme, then it might be an idea to take Sounds in Focus on as it not only supplements but has the ability to take over from the Jolly Phonics programme which may not have enough for the average class teacher.
