Phonics

This half term we will be learning phase 5 phonics. We will be practising reading real words and pseudo words (fake/alien words) spotting digraphs, trigraphs and alternative sounds in words. There are games that relate to this on https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/. Please practise this at home.

Our school has chosen Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised as our new systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) programme to teach early reading and spelling.
