Phonics - Our new phonics scheme is Unlocking Letters and Sounds (ULS). Please find information on how to say the sounds, the actions and the Phase 5 sound families below. If you would like to see a video of the sounds and the actions, please ask.
Reading - Most children will be reading ULS books that are fully decodable, children will know the sounds contained in the book they are given and will feel confident to read it mostly fluently. This is supported by reading the book 3-4 times at home. We are excited to be using our new reading records, please read every day and write in the record. Please add any other books that you enjoy reading together.
Spellings - Children will have a spelling lesson on a Monday with spellings for their year group. Some children will then learn these spellings, copies of the booklet for the term can be found below and are also in their spelling folder. Some children will be learning spellings from the 100 High Frequency word list and the lists for the term are in spelling folders. Please also find below the spelling lists for Year 1 and 2 and Year 3 and 4.
