Phonics Lessons

During our phonics lessons the children will:

  • learn that sounds are represented by written letters
  • learn 44 sounds and the corresponding letter/letter groups using simple picture prompts
  • learn how to blend sounds
  • learn to read words using 'Fred Talk'
  • learn to write the letters/letter groups which represent 44 sounds.
  • learn to write words by saying the sounds in 'Fred Talk'
  • write simple sentences


What does a phonics Lesson look like?

Each lesson has the same structure so children focus on the new learning rather than worrying about what is going to happen next. Children are grouped according to their ability so they only attempt work that is achievable making it more enjoyable and allowing learning and confidence to flourish side by side.
