Children will be focusing on Phase 4 phonics, developing the skills to blend (read) and segment (spell) words containing all of the sounds taught in Phases 2 and 3.
Children will start to learn the sounds within Phase 5 and apply these in their reading and spelling.
Phases 2, 3, 4 and 5 activities can be accessed by clicking on the links below.
Children will continue to learn all of the sounds within Phase 5. We will also be revising all sounds taught to date. Children will be reading alien words (made up words) and real words in preparation for the Phonics Screening in June. Old samples of Phonics Screens can be found at the bottom of our class page. You can practise these at home with your child.
There will be a Parents' Meeting in the spring term to explain the Year 1 Phonics Screening, that will take place in June 2019.
Children should now know all of the sounds in Phases 2,3,4 and 5 and they should be able to read and spell a majority of words containing these sounds. Children will be practising reading real and alien words. They will also be using the sounds taught through all curriculum writing opportunities.
All children will do the Phonics Screening in June 2019.
