Phonics teaches children the correspondences between graphemes in written language and phonemes in spoken language, and how to use these to read and spell words. The children started this learning in nursery, through listening games and songs where they have to learn to identify and segment units of sound in speech, into: • Words • Syllables – chat – ter – box! • Phonemes – sh – o - p Jolly Phonics • Letters are introduced as 3 or 4 sounds a week. • Taught through structured learning and play. • Each sound is introduced in a multi-sensory way with a song, action and story (see action sheet). • Children are taught to write the shape of the letter with the correct movement (see letter formation sheet). Children should use a pincer grip on their pencil. • As soon as the first few sounds have been taught, children are taught to blend with them. e.g. h – a – t = hat sh – o – p = shop Developing Phonological Awareness Through the WfL approach, children are given daily opportunities to develop their phonological awareness through everyday games and activities, including: • Poems and songs • Clapping the rhythm in songs or words from book • Odd one out listening games – cat, mat, car, sat • Making up nonsense words, rhymes and alliterative sentences – Sad Sarah sat silently on the sofa. • Bingo, snap and lotto sound games • Sound feely bags What are we looking for? We are helping children to: • Recognise and generate alliteration – Super Sarah • Recognise and generate rhyme and rime – Rime - stale, male, kale (sound and spelt the same) – Rhyme - hey, may, lei (sound the same but spelt differently) • • • • Identify single sounds in spoken words – diff- er - ent Blend sounds smoothly together – c – a - t Identify consonant clusters in spoken words - str Identify long vowel sounds in spoken words – a e i o u How can I help at home? • Check your child’s ‘sounds’ homework to know which sounds have been taught. Then you can highlight these sounds when you read with your child. • With all books, encourage your child to ‘sound out’ simple unfamiliar words. • Always pronounce sounds as pure sounds, ‘m’ not ‘muh’, this will make blending much easier. • Playing games together, with words and sounds.
