Phonics (Reading & Writing)


Phonics - Spring Term


In Phonics, we will shortly be starting on Phase 3 of the Letters and Sounds programme. In this Phase we introduce 25 new graphemes one at a time:


j,v,w, x, y, z, zz, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai,ee, igh, oa, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er.


During Phase 3 children will also learn the letter names and continue to consolidate the sounds learnt in Phase 2. We will spend lots of time working on blending sounds together to read words and segmenting the sounds for spelling. Also reading and writing captions and sentences.


 In Phase 3 we also introduce the children to another set of tricky words:


he, she, we, me, be, you, all, are, her, was, they, my
