Key Stage 1/Foundation Stage Phonics Workshop Monday 4th November, 2013
FAQWhat ‘root’ sounds and spelling choices are taught throughout Foundation and Key Stage 1?How are the children assessed in phonics?I want to help but I don’t know if I am doing it correctly?Should children know the alphabet or should they just know the sounds?What happens if my child is struggling?What is meant by ‘blending phonemes’?
Phonic Phases –Stage 1 • To distinguish one sound from another – develop phonological awareness. Environmental sounds Instrumental sounds Body percussion Rhythm and rhyme Alliteration Voice sounds Oral blending/segmenting

We are now using Floppy’s Phonics scheme to teach phonics in Foundation Stage and Year 1. • It is a highly interactive scheme that engages all children in their learning • The Daily Phonics sessions follow the same pattern each day and are divided into discreet sections.
Daily Phonics Sessions • Revisit and review -Sing alphabet song -Identify specific alphabet letters -Recap previous phonemes/words - oral blending/segmenting
Teach - new phoneme ( using The I.W.B. screen. - cvc spellings - correct letter formation - HF words(including tricky words)
Practise • - reading words using taught phonemes in isolation OR • - writing words using taught phonemes • - phoneme/grapheme correspondences
Apply -reading captions and sentences using taught phonemes OR - writing captions and sentences using taught phonemes
Helping your child to read • Listening to taped stories • Reading to your child – model pointing to words as you read • Share the reading with your child -you read a page, your child reads a page • Reading different types of books – both fiction and non-fiction • Reading signs and labels ie the supermarket is the perfect place to do this in a fun way!
Helping your child to write • Give them opportunities to write at home ie. shopping lists, messages, own stories, labels etc. • Write shopping lists with your child – let them see you writing • Ask your child to read back what they have written • Encourage them to use appropriate case and use letter names and sounds
Year 1 Phonics (Stage 4 and 5 -see handout) • Term 1 - Floppy's Phonics • Term 2 - mixture of Floppy's Phonics and Phonics International • Term 3 - Phonics International • 25 minute daily sessions • 5 minutes recapping, revising (flashcards, previous pages on Floppy Phonics) • 10 minutes teaching of new sound (reading/sounding out of words using segmenting fingers then blending sounds together) • 10 minutes applying what learnt (children choose a spelling of the same sound to complete a word and write down on white boards)
