Phonics

Phonics 

Phonics is taught daily to all pupils in EYFS/Y1/Y2 classes. We cover 6 phases. We teach the children the letter names and the sound (Phoneme) they make when they are on their own or with other letters. The children are also taught how to write each sound (Grapheme) this can be an individual letter, two letters (a digraph) or three letters (a trigraph).

To help your child with the letter sounds please watch the video from Oxford Reading Tree –‘How to pronounce pure sounds’
