In Year 1, after recapping the previously taught sounds in phases 2 and 3, we begin learning phase 5.
The sounds in phase 5 are alternative spellings of the sounds learnt in phase 3, which can make it tricky to begin with, ie. how do we know when to use which spelling?
We spend lots of time going through the spelling rules, reading as many words as we can which helps us remember when to use the alternative spellings.
Learning phonics can be really fun, especially when we play lots of different games and activities!
The links below will show you the sounds in the different phases - take a look!
If if you would like any information on Year 1 phonics then please talk to Miss Parton or Mrs Nicholls and we will be happy to answer any questions you might have!
