What is phonics?
Phonics consists of teaching the skills of segmenting and blending, the alphabetic code and an understanding of how this is used in reading and spelling. Simply put, it is hearing the sounds in a word and writing them down to spell it correctly. When reading, it is sounding out a word and sticking the sounds back together to read the whole word.
When children start in Reception each class do a workshop where the child and parent learn phonics alongside one another. These documents give the feedback from each class.
