Phonics in YR 1:
In Year One we learn phonics through the Letters and Sounds LCP planning scheme. We stream across the year group to ensure that all children are learning at their specific pace and level which allows us to focus more in depth on what the children need to know. This means that your child may have a different teacher during their phonics lesson to their class teacher.
Within our phonics sessions children will be asked to read and write words, captions and sentences and play specific games designed to improve their sounding out and blending skills. We use robot arms to sound talk through the word and blend once we have sounded out.
There are also tricky and high frequency words that the children can practice reading at home.
