Phonics    

Summer Term 2017

This half term the children will continue to revise Phase 4 of the Letters and Sounds phonics programme, blending and reading words with adjacent consonants in them at the beginning and end of words. We will also read and spell words which have both adjacent consonants and digraphs in them. 

We will encourage children to say the two sounds softly together eg sp, st, cl ,cr, pl ,bl, mp ,nt etc. when reading words. We will also blend three consonants together eg spr, scr, str. 

We will introduce the children to Phase 5 Letters and Sounds, recognising alternative spellings of digraphs in words eg ai /ay oi/oy, oa /oe , ea /ee,   er/ir.
