Phonics

This term's Phonics: we will be continuing to work on alternative spellings and pronunciations for sounds.

 

Phonics is taught daily in Year 1 for 20 to 30 minutes. In Foundation Stage children have worked through Phase 1 and most of Phase 2, in Year 1 we are expected to teach to the end of Phase 5.
