Phonics and Reading in Year 1
We have been revising our Phase 2 and Phase 3 phonics over the last few weeks. These are normally completed before the end of Reception, however 2020 is an extraordinary year and so we have continued with this learning in Year 1. We have been sending home Phase 3 phonics reading books to all our Year 1 pupils to help support them to practise and become more fluent. Over the next few weeks, we are concentrating on Phase 4 in class, using the sounds we already know in different clusters to help us read more complex words. When children are ready, they will bring home Phase 4 phonics books. We are aiming to be ready for Phase 5 by Christmas. (Please note that some children are also bringing home a separate reading book which is teaching them more about comprehension / understanding and that this is different to their phonics book and based on a separate assessment system, we aim for all children to move to these before Year 2). It is really important that books are returned on a Friday, in the plastic wallet and with the named book mark. This is so that we can easily identify which children have returned their book and so we can quarantine the books for the recommended time. We are running two separate sets of books to make sure that the risk of transmission to staff and to all our families is minimised.
To support your child further, please share the phonics book every day. You can also try the links below to help your child become more fluent. If you have any questions, please email the Year 1 team (email@example.com)
