Letters and Sounds
 
 

Phonics is only a small part of the childrens learning. Here at Lowther we follow Letters and Sounds from the Government guidelines of teaching phonics. This is six phases of learning which runs from Nursery into Year 2.

Phase One of Letters and Sounds concentrates on developing children's speaking and listening skills and lays the foundations for the phonic work which starts in Phase 2 at the beginning of reception. The emphasis during Phase 1 is to get children attuned to the sounds around them and ready to begin developing oral blending and segmenting skills.

It is intended that each of the first six aspects should be dipped into, rather than going through them in any order, with a balance of activities. Aspect 7 will usually come later, when children have had plenty of opportunity to develop their sound discrimination skills.
