Phonics sessions are now streamed across reception, allowing for all children's needs and abilities to be met. All children will be introduced to new phonemes and graphemes daily within their phonics group. All children should have an empty DVD case showing the phonemes of the phase they are working through, along with the tricky words and High Frequency Words (HFW) from the same phase. Try asking your child to show you what they have learnt in phonics using the DVD case, how many sounds can they recognise? Feel free to record this in their reading diaries. Please see below for links to useful websites to help support their phonic knowledge. The children are encouraged to know the letter sound (phoneme) but also the letter names (grapheme).
