PIRLS 2016 Results Show Importance of Synthetic Phonics Teaching for Reading and Writing

All of us at Jolly Learning are delighted to see that the release of the 2016 Progress in International Reading Study (PIRLS) results has highlighted the importance of synthetic phonics in teaching reading. English speaking countries with impressive improvements are those that have incorporated it widely in schools.

 

Jolly Phonics is the most widely used international phonics programme, and the successful countries are those where it has been used most extensively. Some of these, such as Ireland (ranked 4th), and Trinidad and Tobago, have Jolly Phonics in almost all schools, while England, Australia and Spain use it in a high proportion of schools.

 

By contrast, the results have also highlighted the poor performances of many English-speaking countries that do not use Jolly Phonics extensively. The United States and New Zealand both fell in the rankings, whilst South Africa finished bottom.

 

As Chris Jolly, publisher of Jolly Phonics, says: “These results highlight how a published synthetic phonics programme, such as Jolly Phonics, can enable major improvements in the teaching of reading.”
