PHONICS

Phonics is a way of teaching children to read quickly and skilfully. They are taught how to:

 

- recognise the sounds that each individual letter makes;

 

- identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make

 such as ‘sh’ or ‘oo’; and

 

- blend these sounds together from left to right to make a word.

 

Children can then use this knowledge to ‘de-code’ new words that they hear or see. This is the first important step in learning to read.
