As a parent, you will probably have
heard the word “phonics” used when
talking about the way that children
learn to read. When you were a child,
it’s possible that you were taught
to read through learning by sight,
looking at the shape of the word as
a whole.

These days, children are encouraged
to break down the individual sounds in
words in order to “decode” them and
work out what they are.They may also
be pronounced in a different way than
you are familiar with, as children are
taught to only say the very smallest
unit of sound, so for example, the letter
‘m’ is pronounced ‘mmmm’ instead of
‘muh’. Here are some of the key aspects
you’ll need to know to help your children
with their phonics learning.


Please see below some Phonics information which may help you at home.


Many thanks,


Mr Brooke and Mrs Cooper
