Reception Phonics


Unit 1

We have recorded some phonics information that we hope you will find useful. We start by explaining the importance of phonics and how we teach it to your children in school.

We explain how to say the sounds correctly, how to blend sounds together to read words and how to segment words to help with writing.






This is a typical phonics lesson which takes place daily.
