How to help to support your child at home


Phase 2 

In Phase 2 children are introduced to each written letter (grapheme) and the sound (phoneme) that they make. They use their knowledge to merge sounds together (blend) to help them to read words. Children will also learn to chop (segment) words up to help them to write simple words. The children love to use their robot arms to help them.

Blending for reading words              s-a-t = sat          

Segmenting for spelling words           pin = p-i-n

 This video will you to help understand blending.

Phonics Phase 3

Phase 3

In Phase 3 children will use their knowledge of blending and segmenting and will learn some new letters. These new sounds are two (diagraph) or three (trigraph) letters merged together to make one sound. 

sh-o-p = shop

t-ai-l = tail        

n-igh-t = night

Tricky words

Children also need to learn the Phase 2 and 3 tricky words. These are words that need be learned as a whole.

In the Reception Class we were working towards the Early Learning Goals. The tasks I will be setting are working towards securing the Early Learning Goals.

Below are some of the ELG 

Writing ELG
Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.

Reading ELG

Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.

Numeracy - Number ELG

Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

Shape/ Space/ Measure ELG

 Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
