- Children need to learn the most common sounds made in English when two or three letters are grouped together.
- It is the automatic recognition of these combinations that allow children to become competent and fluent readers.
The activities have been carefully selected to provide practice and revision to help achieve the following:
- Understanding how groups of letters are used to represent the sounds of spoken language.
- Continued development of word attack skills - the ability to analyse and decode new words.
- Increase in comprehensionskills - following directions, classifying and understanding written text.
- Extension of vocabulary.
- Development of handwriting skills while studying phonics.
