Monster Phonics​​​

Monster Phonics is a DfE validated scheme used across the UK and internationally. It combines a carefully-structured teaching and learning programme with an engaging reading scheme. A strong feature of the programme is the high-quality core materials for teachers and parents. It adopts a multi-sensory approach which creates a love of learning. 

The Monster Phonics journey starts in Nursery with the Foundations Programme and continues throughout Reception and KS1 with the School Programme. Monster Phonics improves progress for all learners. This is because colour-coding makes learning phonics more memorable. 


Monster Phonics is easier to learn and remember. Monster Phonics helps children to learn and recall spellings by using colour. Each sound and colour is also represented by a monster that makes that sound (a sound cue). This brings phonics to life and makes Monster Phonics highly engaging.
