Letters and Sounds
A phase by phase guide to the phonics programme used in school.
Phase Five of our phonics programme!
Children at this stage should already be able to read and spell words with adjacent consonants, such as trap, string and flask. They will also be able to read and spell some polysyllabic words.
In Phase Five, we will learn more graphemes and phonemes. For example, they already know ai as in rain, but now they will be introduced to ay as in day and a-e as in make.
Alternative pronunciations for graphemes will also be introduced, e.g. ea in tea, head and break.
Over the year we introduce common exception words, including decodable and tricky words, as well as days of the week.
Next we're learning:
oe/ oa - as in toe
a_e/ ai - as in awake
ir / ur- as in girl hurt

y /ee/ - as in happy
o_e /oa/ - as in cone, bone
