Children are taught to read and spell using the Letters and Sounds phonics program. Children progress through the phases throughout Nursery, Reception and Year One. Typically, children complete Phase 4 at the end of Reception. In Year One, most children will take part in the national 'Phonics Screening Check' which is designed to assess children's ability to blend phonemes.
I have added some useful videos from our favourite Youtube channel for you to watch. Nessy has some really helpful strategies for spelling.
I have included some we have watched in class and refer to often during our phonics and writing sessions.
I will be using more strategies in class to support spelling decisions, so I will continue to add videos that link to our current phonics and grammar work.
