In Year 1 we will continue to build on the phonic knowledge the children have learnt in Year R.
With these sounds the children can read and spell words where they can hear each individual phoneme (sound). Such as cvc words (consonant, vowel, consonant) c-a-t, g-e-t, w-e-n-t
or ccvc (consonant, consonant, vowel, consonant) sh-i-p, ch-a-t, th-i-s
and cvcc (consonant, vowel, consonant, consonant) f-i-sh, w-i-th, m-u-ch
The next sounds or phonemes we learn will be Phases 2 and 3. These are the longer sounds with two letters which make one sound called diagraphs.
-ay -oi -sh -th
and those with 3 letters, trigraphs, which make one sound.
The children will be able to use these to read and spell more complex words.
We are constantly looking for ways to enhance and strength our phonic teaching and learning.
