Phonics

Phonics

In our Phonics, we currently follow Letters and Sounds to deliver high quality Phonics lessons. Each lesson follows a key process to ensure children are successful in their learning. The lesson begins with a revision session (to revise pervious learning) and then new learning is introduced. The children are then given opportunities to read words linked to the new learning then spell them. After this, they move on read a sentence and then write their own linked sentence. Throughout the day, they are then provided with opportunities in all areas to 'bump' into their learning. 

 

Phonics Information

During Year 1, we focus a great deal of our learning on being able to read and use phonics sounds. By the end of Year 1, we are aiming for children to be secure in using all the sounds from Phase 2-Phase 5 in their reading.  

One of the best ways of becoming secure in these sounds is using flashcards daily. Please refer to the information booklet below if you would like some ideas for phonics activities. There is also a useful glossary of phonics terms. We have also included all the sounds mats for you to use at home if you wish.
