Welcome to Elmstead Primary School

YEar 1

Current Phonics in Year 1 - 13.11.20

Children are currently learning to:

 

  • Blend consonants together in words.  Click HERE for a helpful clip.
  • An example of a helpful revision clip can be found HERE.  There are lots by Simply Phonics (recommended revision of Phase 3 and Phase 4), where you can listen first, then turn the sound off to encourage your child to recall sounds and blend themselves.

It would really help the children to watch and practise these clips at home and it is a great way for you to continue to learn how to support your child with their reading at home.
