Phonics is integral to our working day in Year 1 and 2. The children are encouraged to recognise the grapheme (letters) within words that make a phoneme (sound). For example: Sounding out the word light, the children would aim to spot any digraphs or trigraphs first. The children would spot 'igh' and then blend- l-igh-t. We then work hard to write these graphemes creating words.
Children can be encouraged to use the following website to support their learning at home and in school. Obb and Bob is one of our favourites!
