Do any schools in the / North London area have an old school over head projector that I can borrow for a day to project an image on to a 2m x 4m canvas so the kids can draw an outline of an image we are going to paint? https://t.co/ys0AO7KZS8

To inspire Fox class writing, our English lesson was a bit different today. We built rafts out of materials to see if they would float - just like Fred in ‘The Explorer’. We had 100% success rate! https://t.co/ROqV3fVq1V

Phonics

The aim of phonics is to build children's speaking and listening skills and to prepare them for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. Letters and Sounds sets out a detailed and systematic programme for the teaching of the phonic skills through six individual phases. At Roydon we follow this scheme set out by the Department of Education but also use Twinkl Phonics to enhance the children’s learning.

Phonics is taught for 20 minutes each day in ability groups. From phase two to phase six. Below you can find a breakdown of the different phases.

Phase

Phonic Knowledge and Skills

Phase One (Nursery/Reception)

Activities are divided into seven aspects, including environmental sounds, instrumental sounds, body sounds, rhythm and rhyme, alliteration, voice sounds and finally oral blending and segmenting.

Phase Two (Reception) up to 6 weeks

Learning 19 letters of the alphabet and one sound for each. Blending sounds together to make words. Segmenting words into their separate sounds. Beginning to read simple captions.

Phase Three (Reception) up to 12 weeks

The remaining 7 letters of the alphabet, one sound for each. Graphemes such as ch, oo, th representing the remaining phonemes not covered by single letters. Reading captions, sentences and questions. On completion of this phase, children will have learnt the "simple code", i.e. one grapheme for each phoneme in the English language.

Phase Four (Reception) 4 to 6 weeks

No new grapheme-phoneme correspondences are taught in this phase. Children learn to blend and segment longer words with adjacent consonants, e.g. swim, clap, jump.

Phase Five (Throughout Year 1)

Now we move on to the "complex code". Children learn more graphemes for the phonemes which they already know, plus different ways of pronouncing the graphemes they already know.

Phase Six (Throughout Year 2 and beyond)

Working on spelling, including prefixes and suffixes, doubling and dropping letters etc.
