Pearson Bug Club Phonics

Bug Club Phonics is a DfE validated, synthetic, phonics program that provides everything needed to help children succeed in early reading. It combines a comprehensive teaching program and fully decodable print books. These phonically decodable texts support the explicit teaching of synthetic phonics at Emergent and Early Stages.

By featuring much-loved characters such as CBeebies Alphablocks, they create comfortable and confident learners by helping to link a child’s home environment with school. The teaching program and readers are grouped in a developing order based on the order of sounds introduced in synthetic phonics programs. Overall, the scheme gives children a firm, fun foundation in Phonics.
