Letters and Sounds There are 6 phases which span Reception to end of Year 2. By then most children will be confident readers and writers. There will be daily whole class activities in Reception alongside small group work
Before the children joined us Phase 1 -paves the way for systematic phonics Activities that are planned help children listen and distinguish between sounds and hear the sounds in words.
Important words that your children will be using phoneme - sound grapheme – the way you write the sound digraph- A combination of two graphemes (letters) representing one phoneme (sound) e.g. sh/ch trigraph- a combination of three letters representing one phoneme e.g. igh/ear segment – split the word into its sounds to spell it blend – say all the sounds in a word quickly to read the word
Sound talk All oral ! No letters ! Many of the children will have used sound talk in Pre school and it is still very important. Often the children will use robot arms too. d/o/g sh/e/ll t/or/ch

In Year R children will learn which letter/letters make a sound. Jolly phonics is used to give actions. They will bring home a sheet each time they learn a new phoneme and grapheme. At the end of Year R children will have learnt one way of writing each sound.
