9 Subject knowledge and systematic teaching and learning of phonics 01/05/08Subject knowledge and systematic teaching and learning of phonicsTo work successfully in Phase 5, teachers and practitioners need to develop a good knowledge of the alphabetic code from Phase 2 through to Phase 5.It is therefore essential frequently to revisit subject knowledge, to develop a deeper understanding of how the code works in order to support learning and teaching in Phase 5.

11 Phonics consists of: identifying sounds in spoken words; 01/05/08identifying sounds in spoken words;recognising the common spellings of each phoneme;blending phonemes into words for reading;segmenting words into phonemes for spelling.Phonics consists of:
12 Some definitions A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound in a word. 01/05/08Some definitionsA phoneme is the smallest unit of sound in a word.
13 Some definitions Grapheme Letter(s) representing a phoneme. t ai igh 01/05/08Some definitionsGraphemeLetter(s) representing a phoneme.t ai igh
14 Phonemes and graphemes 01/05/08Phonemes and graphemesTerminologyphonemesmallest unit of sound in a wordgraphemea letter or sequence ofletters that representsa phoneme
15 Phonemes and graphemes 01/05/08Phonemes and graphemesPhonemes are represented by graphemes.A grapheme may consist of one (t), two (ch) or more letters (igh).A phoneme can be represented/spelled in more than one way: cat, kennel, choir.The same grapheme may represent more than one phoneme: me, met.

17 Some definitions Blending Recognising the phonemes in a 01/05/08Some definitionsBlendingRecognising the phonemes in awritten word, for example c-u-p, sh-ee-p,and merging or synthesising them in theorder in which they are written to pronouncethe word: ‘cup’, ‘sheep’.p – ai – d paids – w – ee – p sweep
18 Some definitions Oral blending Hearing a series of spoken sounds 01/05/08Some definitionsOral blendingHearing a series of spoken sounds(phonemes) and merging them together to makea spoken word. No text is used.For example, When a teacher calls out ‘b-u-s’ or‘c-r-ay-o-n’,the children say ‘bus’ or ‘crayon’.This skill should be taught within Phase 1before blending and reading printed words.
19 Some definitions Segmenting 01/05/08Some definitionsSegmentingIdentifying the individual sounds in a spoken word (e.g. h-i-m, s-t-or-k) and writing down or manipulating letters for each sound (phoneme) to form the word ‘him’.
20 Blending and Segmentation 01/05/08Blending and SegmentationBlendingMerging the individual phonemes together to pronounce a word.To read unfamiliar words a child must recognise (sound out) each grapheme, not each letter, then merge the phonemes together to make a word.SegmentationHear and say the individual phonemes within words.In order to spell, children need to segment a word into its component phonemes and choose a grapheme to represent each phoneme.
21 Some definitions Digraph Two letters, which make one phoneme. 01/05/08Some definitionsDigraphTwo letters, which make one phoneme.A consonant digraph contains 2 consonants:sh ck th llA vowel digraph contains at least one vowel:ai ee ar oyConsonant digraphs are not identified as in CVC words.Ship is ‘digraph vowel consonant’ CVC.Church is ‘consonant digraph vowel consonant digraph’ CVC.
22 Some definitions Trigraph Three letters, which make one phoneme. 01/05/08Some definitionsTrigraphThree letters, which make one phoneme.igh dge
23 Some definitions Split digraph 01/05/08Some definitionsSplit digraphA digraph in which the two letters are not adjacent – e.g. ‘make’.

42 Examples of CCVC, CVCC, CCCVC and CCVCC 01/05/08Examples of CCVC, CVCC, CCCVC and CCVCCb l a ck s t r ea mc c v c c c c v cf ou n d b l a n kc v c c c c v c cACTIVITYConsider with reference to the above slide, what could be the most common errors practitioners may make when blending and segmenting these words.Synthetic phonics focuses on the smallest units of sound in a word.There are usually 2 or 3 phonemes within a number of consecutive (adjacent) consonants.e.g. strap contains five phonemes /s/ /t/ /r/ /a/ /p/‘Str’ is not a phoneme‘Ap’ is not a phonemeChildren need to be taught to blend and segment these phonemes within CCVC and CVCC words.Teachers should not be teaching ‘sl’, ‘sm’, ‘sn’ etc as units of sound which need to be learned individually – this takes far too long, is unnecessary and doesn’t improve children’s spelling and reading skills as quickly.The key here is applying the generic skill of blending to the phonemes in the word (using the taught knowledge of sound-spelling correspondences), from left to right in the order in which they are recorded in the word.42

Put up title but not grapheme choices until after this activity.Vowel digraphs followed by a consonant or in a final position.Tell delegates that you are going to ask them to write down a selection of nonsense words.We are using nonsense words to deskill them and to highlight how, when you are not familiar with a word, you need to use all your listening skills to tune into the sounds in the word, and that delegates will need to focus on your mouth as you articulate the word. Essential strategies to apply when working with children.There are no wrong or right answers.We are investigating where graphemes are most likely to occur – followed by a consonant or in final position.You will use what phonic knowledge you have. Adults will have no problem with finding a reasonable choice.Children will apply what they know. Useful assessment of phonic acquisition.As they are nonsense words, clear enunciation is crucial.Observe how they really do have to fix their sight on your mouth and listen very carefully to lock into the phonemes within the words. The word will need to be articulated several times for them to be able to remember.Worth commenting on your observations of how they do the above.Feedback possible choices on slide. There will be others, eg. split-digraphs often offered.

53 Teaching high-frequency words 01/05/08Teaching high-frequency wordsIn the past, often regarded as needing to be taught as ‘sight words’Research shows when words are recognised at sight, this recognition is most efficient when it is underpinned by GP knowledgeThis has been the common approach to teaching high-frequency words in the past. It was felt that they needed to be recognised as visual wholes without much attention to GPC in them, even when those correspondences are straightforward.
54 Teaching high-frequency words 100 common words that recur frequently in much written materialMost are decodableEnd of Phase 2, 26 HF words are decodable; further 12 by the end of Phase 3; further 6 by the end of Phase 4During Phase 5 children learn many more graphemes, so more words become decodableSome of the ‘tricky’ words have been taught in earlier phases16 new ‘tricky’ words to be taught in Phase 5
55 Teaching high-frequency words 01/05/08Teaching high-frequency wordsLetters and Sounds aligns decodable HF words with the GPCs that have been taught in each PhaseA quarter of the 100 HF words occurring most frequently in children’s books are decodable at Phase 2Half of the 100 words are decodable by end of Phase 4The majority are decodable by end of Phase 5
56 Teaching high-frequency words 01/05/08Teaching high-frequency wordsThose HF words that are not completely phonetically regular contain some known GPCsStart with what is known and register the ‘tricky bit’ in the word.

It illustrates how development of language comprehension together with developing word recognition skills through phonics, moves from learning to read to reading to learn and how the two elements need purposeful application across the curriculum.Phonics should be time limited as decoding so we move from learning to read, to reading to learn.This model tries to animate how the SVR gives purpose to communication, language and literacy.Development and use of Communication Language and Literacy are at the heart of young children’s learning.Drivers for all learning are PSED and CLL/PSHE/ Literacy - disposition to learn and the ability to communicate and use language.Oral comprehension should be used and developed across the currriculum -. purposeful talk -. developing vocabulary through social interaction across the areas of the curriculum. As decoding skills develop, eventually understanding written as well as oral language.This should dovetail with developing word recognition through phonics. (The simple view of reading).Purpose to decode and encode through actively engaged in learning situations using all their senses and developing oral language through the areas of learning.The model will now have formed into an ‘L’ shape as an early ‘learning to read’ learner.To complete the model we aim for children who have good word recognition and good comprehension.

68 Phase 5 Using IWB resources 01/05/08 Demonstrate some of the IWB resources to support suggested activities for Phase 5 from Letters and Sounds.Make clear that using ICT resources is not a replacement for good teaching using practical, visual, aural and kinaesthetic approaches to learning, but in the ‘teach’ part of the four part teaching sequence, where new learning is being demonstrated by the class teacher, ICT can engage children in the learning and enhance it. The same resources can then provide a resource that can be used with and by children independently to help them secure and internalise their learning by practising and applying what they have learned through the medium of ICT. The ‘practise’ part of the four-part teaching sequence should involve all the children practising their new learning in multi-sensory interactive approaches.
