If your child is new to the school, they will carry out a phonics assessments so we know what level they are working at. The children then work in small groups for phonics, depending on what they need to learn next. As they achieve each area, they will be moved to the next group. When the children can orally blend and segment we will start to teach the letter sounds. Below are the different areas of phonics in phase 1.
We will also be getting the children to repeat rhyming strings, match objects that rhyme and continue a rhyming string. You can help your child at home by singing lots of different nursery rhymes and reading rhyming stories.
