We have begun our Phonics learning, starting with Phase 2. Over the next few weeks, we will link sounds to letters, segmenting and blending CVC words as well as developing our letter formation skills. The children will learn to recognise and read Tricky Words – these are words that cannot be sounded out as there is a letter making a different sound.
You may start to see our new sounds in your child mark making and writing, please support this playful learning.
Your child may also spot them in their reading books or out and about! Give them the challenge to find particular letters while at the shops or on the way to school.
Phase 2 sounds include:
s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll and ss.
Phase 2 Tricky words include:
I, no, go, to, into
