Phonics

Dear Parent or Carer,

 

  • You will need to click the links to the red and green words.
  • These are at the bottom of the phonics page on our website.
  • Red words are words that cannot be decoded (sounded out)
  • For example: my, was, does.
  • Children need to practise reading these regularly so that they can read them ‘on sight’.
  • Green words, however, can be decoded – once you know the code – or sounds (phonemes). Words like mat, tray, clean.

 

Not all children should be trying all red and green words because it may be too much too soon for some pupils – especially if they do not yet know the whole ‘code’.

 

This list is a guide only. The secret is – not too much too soon.

 

  • First thing – ask your child who their phonics teacher is.
  • Now check the table below.
