What is Phonics?
Words are made up of small units of sounds called phonemes. Phonics teaches children to be able to hear and recognise the phonemes that make up each word.
First they identify the phonemes in a word and then blend them together to read it. For example, in the word ‘cat’ we can hear each sound c-a-t and we blend them to read cat.
In F2 we use Letterland Phonics in our Phonics lessons. Please see the videos and documents below for information on how you can help with phonics at home.
