Phonics at Foxhill
Phonics is a way of teaching children how to read and write.
It helps children to identify, hear and use different sounds that distinguish one word from an other.
When children know the sounds of individual letters and how those letters sound when they're combined, they are able to decode words and read them.
At Foxhill, we use the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds revised scheme to teach Phonics.
The Programme Progression Overview indicates the progression of GPCs (spelling-sound correspondents, known as grapheme-phoneme correspondents) and tricky words that we teach term-by-term.
Reception children learn Phase 2, 3 and 4 then progress to Phase 5 in Year 1.
