Literacy - Phonics, Reading and Writing



 In Reception we focus on Phases 2 and 3.  As we progress through the year you may find that in time your child is ready to move on to Phase 4 where no new sounds are taught but the words are longer and contain more consonants.  Phase 5 is a phase that is taught in Year 1.    If you are unsure of the pronunciation of phonemes, please refer to the video below.
