Letters Extra: Repeating old mistakes

I agree with Jean Gross that phonics works very well for children withnbsp;special needs.

However, there are better versions than PiPs, thenbsp;governmentnbsp;Progression in Phonics which contains too many of the flaws of thenbsp;Nationalnbsp;Literacy Strategy.

The student teachers who David Oglenbsp;(Primary View, TES January 3) saysnbsp;arenbsp;crying out for "basics," and any other people looking for a simple phonicsnbsp;programme, could start by looking at http:www.users.rapid.net.ukcatphonics which needs no training, can benbsp;used for any age, dyslexic or not, and being free is a world "first".
