Phonics

Summer 1

This half term we are focusing on Oral Blending and Segmenting using Fred Talk. The children have met Fred the frog, who is used during all Phonics sessions. Fred, like the children, is learning to read, and only says the sounds in words (Fred Talk). Fred says each sound in the word, and the children have to blend the sounds together to identify the word. For example: m-a-t or d-a-d. 

 

In addition to learning Fred-Talk, we will also be learning a few of the Set 1 sounds from Read Write Inc

As well as learning to identify the phoneme, we encourage the children to have a go at writing the letters using different resources. In Nursery, the children are encouraged to make large marks, before making smaller marks for writing in Reception. Here are a few ways the children learn how to correctly form the letters;
