Segmenting: breaking up words into their individual sounds so that we can spell a word.

During Phase 3, children will also learn the letter names using an alphabet song
In Phase 4, no new graphemes are introduced. The main aim of this phase is to consolidate the children's knowledge and to help them learn to read and spell words which have adjacent consonants, such as trap, string and milk. All the sounds must be heard within the word.
In phase 5 we introduce split diagraghs. They are a_e, e_e, i_e, o_e and u_e. The two letters work as a team but they arent directly next to each other.
In Phase Five, children 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.
Packed with interactive phonics games and resources to help children to learn to hear phonemes, recognise graphemes and develop skills that are vital for learning to read and spell.
