During the Autumn Term, children will recap Phase 2 and 3 sounds. They will practise reading and writing simple words and sentences using these sounds.
In the Spring Term, children will begin learning Phase 5 sounds. You can support your child by practising recognising these sounds in words and completing any phonics based homework each week.
At the end of Year 1, your child will participate in a Phonics Screening. During the screening, children will have to read 40 words, some of which are real and some are alien (not real words). You can support your child at home by helping them to practise reading words and sentences using the different sounds.
