Phonics- All phases!
If you would like to help your child at home, these are the phases we work through. Please ask us if you are unsure what phase your child is on. Please don't move them on to the next phase too quickly, it is much better for your child if they are fully confident with reading, writing and spelling the words in their ability phase. In Pirate Class we test the children on these every half term.
