Farmyard Phonics in FS2 (Reception)
Hearing and reading the sounds in words
The children in FS2 enjoy learning phonics during 2 specific sessions a day. One session is related to hearing and reading sounds and the other to writing them. Our phonics are taught using the Letters and Sounds guidance and ideas and resources from Read, Write inc. These children were hearing and reading farm words with digraphs - two letters that make one sound (two special friends) and trigraphs - three letters that make one sound (three special friends), e.g. farm, farmer, barn, yard, pure, manure!
