Phonics

Words are made up from small units of sound called phonemes. Phonics teaches children to be able to listen carefully and identify the phonemes that make up each word. This helps children to learn to read words and to spell words.  This half term we have been learning the sounds ;

S   a   t   p   i   n   m   d    g   o   c   k   ck   e   u   r

Please practice these phonemes with your child and writing them down (grapheme).

Blending and Segmenting

The children have been learning to blend. This is when children say the sounds that make up a word and are able to merge the sounds together until they can hear what the word is. This skill is vital in learning to read. The children have been learning to segment. This is the opposite of blending. Children are able to say a word and then break it up into the phonemes that make it up. This skill is vital in being able to spell words. Please practice these words at home;

it an am dad
is in man sad
sit nip mam dim
sat pan mat dip
pit pin map din
tip tin pam dip
pip tan tim sid
sip nap sam and

 

We have also been learning these high frequency words; is it in at and
