Phonics

Phonics

Led by Miss Carr

At East Bergholt Primary School we believe that children should be able to use a wide range of phonetic skills so they can appreciate a wide range of literature and communicate their feelings and thoughts effectively.

Children should be able to:

  • Blend and segment sounds easily

  • Learn that segmenting words into their constituent phonemes for spelling is the reverse of blending phonemes into words for reading

  • Spell words accurately by combining the use of grapheme-phoneme correspondence knowledge as the prime approach, and also morphological knowledge and etymological information

  • Use a range of approaches to learn and spell irregular words.

     

    Entitlement

    Pupils have access to a range of phonics opportunities that include at FS and KS1:

  • Whole class teaching of specific spelling patterns

  • Daily discrete phonics teaching

  • Using phonics knowledge in real life contexts

  • Applying skills in cross curricular contexts

    Pupils have access to a range of phonics opportunities that include at KS2:

  • Whole class teaching of specific spelling conventions and rules

  • Discrete phonics teaching as part of an intervention group where gaps in phonological knowledge have been identified

  • Using phonological knowledge in real life contexts

  • Applying skills in cross curricular contexts

The school uses the Letters and Sounds scheme as a basis for Phonic teaching and also uses a variety of resources from many different areas to facilitate and enhance learning. More information in 'information for parents'.
