Phonics Phase One Aspects 6 and 7: Voice Sounds and Oral Blending and Segmenting
During Phase 1 Phonics, there is no expectation to introduce graphemes (letters) although some children will naturally show an interest in them. It is crucial to build a solid foundation of careful listening to the sounds in words as children who can hear phonemes in words are best placed to make a good start in reading and writing. You'll find a selection of activities and resources designed to help with these Aspects below.
