In Reception we have begun Phase 2 of the Letters and Sounds Phonics programme. In this phase we are learning how to correctly pronounce and write the following sounds:
- Set 1: s, a, t, p.
- Set 2: i, n, m, d.
- Set 3: g, o, c, k.
- Set 4: ck, e, u, r.
- Set 5: h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss.
Alongside teaching the above sounds we have started to teach children the skills of segmenting and blending. Segmenting is when children are able to identify each sound in the word, they then blend the sounds together to read the word.
For example, s/a/t as children say the sounds faster they should hear that the word says 'sat.' For further information take a look at the following website which has further information, resources and games that you can use at home.
