Phonics

Phonics (Letters & Sounds)

 

Letters and Sounds is the resource we use at Anglesey to support the systematic teaching of phonics. Children begin the Letters and Sounds programme in Nursery and continue across Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2). Every child from Nursery to Year 2 has a 15-20 minute phonics session every morning.

 

The Letters and Sounds programme is separated into six Phases - your child's teacher will be able to tell you which Phase your child is currently working on.

 

Below, you will find links to our pages for each Phase. For each Phase there is a brief explanation of what is taught and a selection of resources (word cards, games & record sheets) which you can use to support your child's learning.

 

If you require any further support, please come into school and speak with your child's class teacher or our English Lead, Mrs Davies.

Support for Parents

 

We are often asked how each letter (or pair of letters) is pronounced. The link below will take you to the Oxford Owl website which will enable you to hear the pronunciation of each sound.  There are also short video clips which explain how to help your child to read using phonics.

Phonics Glossary

We hope the following glossary is useful to you when using our Letters and Sounds pages. Always feel free to come in and talk to us if you require any further support.

 

 blending

Blending is the skill of joining sounds together to read words. Children are taught to say the separate sounds in a word and to then blend them together to decode the word.

 digraph

 A digraph is a sound that is represented by two letters e.g. the sound 'a' in rain is represented by the digraph 'ai'.

grapheme

A grapheme is a visual representation of a sound e.g. a letter or a group of letters.

Some sounds are represented by a single letter whilst others are represented by more than one letter.

 phoneme

 A phoneme is a unit of sound e.g. the word 'cat' contains three phonemes; c - a - t.

 segmenting

 Segmenting is the opposite of blending. Children are taught to segment a word into its separate sounds in order to spell it.

 split digraph

 A split digraph is a digraph that is separated by other letters e.g. the sound 'a' in the word take is represented by the split digraph a-e.
