14 Phonics Words Segmenting(for spelling) Children need to be able to hear a whole word and say every sound that they hear .When they can do this and recall most ofphonemes they need- they are well ontheir way to being independent writers.
16 Phonics Words grapheme Your children will learn to use the term:graphemeThis is how a phoneme is written down – could be 1 letter or 2 or 3h ch igh
17 Phonics WordsYour children will learn to use the term:digraphThis means that the phoneme comprises of two letterse.g. ll, ff, ck, ss
18 Tricky WordsThere are many words that cannot be blended or segmented because they are irregular.the was said you someWe learn these as whole words.
19 Phase 3: Learning the long vowel phonemes Children will enter phase 3 once they know the first 19 phonemes and can blend and segment to read and spell CVC words.They will learn another 26 phonemes:j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, quch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, erThey learn to read words like-pain,thing,beard,coins,sure etc
20 Phonics Words Trigraph Your children will learn to use the term:TrigraphThis means that the phoneme comprises of three letterse.g. igh , ear, ure
21 Phase 4: Year 1 Introducing consonant clusters: reading and spelling words with four or more phonemesChildren move into phase 4 when they know all the phonemes from phases 2 and 3 and can use them to read and spell simple words (blending to read and segmenting to spell).Phase 4 doesn’t introduce any new phonemes.It focuses on reading and spelling longer words with the phonemes they already know.These words have consonant clusters at the beginning: sport, trip, clap, green, clown…or at the end: tent, mend, damp, burnt…or at the beginning and end! trust, spend,twist.
