  • Teaching PhonicsBackground information what is phonics?Phonemes the smallest unit of sound in a word e.g c-a-tGraphemes the letters that represent these sounds. A grapheme could be 1 letter, 2 letters or more! We refer to these as sound buttons t ai igh

  • Sound talk

    c-a-t = cat (blending)

    cat = c-a-t (segmenting)

  • Phase 2Rapid introduction of sounds (one new sound a day)

    Reading VC words (it, at, on, in)

    Reading CVC words (cat, cup, and, pig)

  • Using sound buttonsYour child will be taught how to pronounce the sounds (phonemes) correctly to make blending easier. We use sound buttonsc a t ch i p
