Phonics is taught from Nursery to Year 2.
In F2 we teach phonics every day and focus on a specific phoneme (sound). The phonemes that are being taught can be found in your child's reading record and home learning tasks.
As a school we follow the Jolly Phonics strategy which incorporates actions to remember the phonemes. Please see the links below for more information.
When we write we use phoneme mats 'sound strips' to help us make phonetically plausible attempts at tricky words.
Phoneme: The sound it makes.
Grapheme: The way it looks.
Digraph: Two letters which make one sound e.g. ai, ee, ou
Trigraph: Three letters which make one sound e.g. igh, ure, air
