1 Phonics workshop for the Foundation Stage WelcomePhonics workshop for theFoundation Stage
2 What will we cover? A brief overview for phonics Phonics within the Foundation StageActivities – an opportunity to experience how your child learns and ideas for home.
3 PhonicsPhonics is the main approach to helping children with unknown words.Children need to use letter sounds (not letter names) to decode words.=The smallest unit of sound is called a phoneme. There are 44 phonemes in spoken English.PhonicsSkill of blending and segmentingKnowledge of theAlphabetical code of Phonics
4 Phoneme - The smallest unit of sound. There are 44 phonemes in English Phoneme - The smallest unit of sound. There are 44 phonemes in English. Phonemes can be put together to make words.Grapheme - A way of writing down a phoneme. Graphemes can be made up from 1 letter e.g. p, 2 letters e.g. sh, 3 letters e.g. tch or 4 letters e.g ough.Digraph - A grapheme containing two letters that makes just one sound (phoneme).Trigraph - A grapheme containing three letters that makes just one sound (phoneme).

7 Phonics in Foundation Stage The children are taught using LCP Phonics scheme of work that follows the Primary National Strategy Letters and Sounds.Letters and Sounds is broken up into phases 1-6In the Foundation Stage and KS1 phonics is taught every day for 20 minutes 4 days a week.Children start from phase 2 as phase 1 runs continuously throughout the Foundation Stage.
8 Phase 2 Set 1 - s a t p Set 2 - i n m d Set 3 - g o c k Set 4 - ck e u rSet 5 - h b f ff l ll s ss
9 Phase 3Phase 3 continues in the same way as Phase 2 and introduces new phonemes. By the end of Phase 3 the children will know one way of writing down each of the 44 phonemes.Set 6 - j v w xSet 7 - y z zz quConsonant digraphs - ch sh th ngVowel digraphs (and trigraphs) ai ee igh oa oo ar or ur ow oi ear air ure er
12 Phase 4The main challenge in this phase is to help children to blend and segment words with adjacent consonants e.g. truck, help. These adjacent consonant phonemes can both be heard when you say the word which makes them different from a digraph where there are two letters that make just one sound.
14 Oral blendingThis involves hearing phonemes and being able to merge them together to make a word h - a - t hatd – u –ck duck
15 Activity: Oral blending On the yellow sheet in your pack there are a list of words, in the first column shows the phonemes within the word, sound talk them and then say the word.
16 Blending to readThis involves looking at a written word, looking at each grapheme and to work out which phoneme each grapheme represents and then merging these phonemes together to make a word. This is the basis of reading.dog treeAll about recognising letter sounds in a written word, go through exampleThe order in which they are written!

18 Activity: blending to read recognising graphemes in words (single letter phonemes and digraphs)
19 Activity: blending to read green sheet 1st table – real words to try and blend2nd – nonsense/alien wordsFind it difficult to find words your child doesn’t know from sight vocabulary to check/hellp phonemes and blending skills
20 Oral SegmentingThis is the act hearing a whole word and then splitting it up into the phonemes that make it. Children need to develop this skill before they will be able to segment words to spell them.
21 Activity: how many phonemes (sounds) are in these words? Fingers to count
22 SegmentingThis involves hearing a word, splitting it up into the phonemes that make it.Then writing those graphemes down in the right orderBasis of spellingbat, duck, soon might, market, pram, tent, chair

25 Tricky wordsHowever, some words just don’t ‘sound out’.....these are called ‘Tricky Words’
26 How to help your childPhonics will only work in an environment where Speaking and Listening Skills are promoted and developed. Children should also be regularly exposed to a wide range of quality texts. They should be regularly read aloud to.Read regularly every opportunity not just your child’s booksNonsense/alien words – make your own words up using 44 phoemesActivities and gamesReading record – list of phonemes and phase children are working on in school.Websites
