We are now refreshing our understanding of phonics.
There are 5 phases (the 6th phase being a recap of all and other tricky words).
Beech Class will be looking at specific phonics which are applicable to groups of children and their needs.
We shall be looking at Phase 3 phonics to begin with and how there are often several phonemes (sounds) which might sound the same but use different spellings or (graphemes).
Please use the free program - phonicsplay - this has an amazing amount of activities and information for both children and adults alike.
