|What is phonics?
||Phonics is the learning of letters, sounds and how to read and write these using segmenting and blending.|
Daily phonic sessions are taught in Key Stage 1 through teacher led activites for 20 minutes. These activites work inline with the Primary National Strategy's 'Letters and Sounds' document.
Each child is placed in the group that is related to their phonic ability.
Each group has a different set of sounds, high frequency words and tricky words. These need to be achieved with confidence before moving to the next phase of phonics.
I have listed some useful websites and sound mats for each group, which you can download to help your child learn at home.
