Phonics

A program of synthetic phonics teaching is used at Brook Field. We use the Monster Phonics Scheme, to develop and enhance the children’s phonetic awareness across Key Stage One.

 

There are 6 stages or phases to children’s phonic development:

 

PHASE ONE

There is a strong emphasis on listening skills and oral blending and segmenting in this Phase which underpins the learning in the all other phases.

PHASE TWO

19 letters of the alphabet introduced. There is one sound for each letter/grapheme. 

PHASE THREE

The remaining 7 letters of the alphabet are taught and we start to introduce digraphs for other phonemes. E.g. th

PHASE FOUR

This phase consists of teaching blending and segmenting adjacent consonants.

PHASE FIVE

More graphemes are taught to represent sounds.

Sounds are represented by more than one grapheme.

PHASE SIX

This phase includes revision of phases two to five.

(GPC’s - grapheme-phoneme correspondence)

There is a focus on spelling with simple prefixes and suffixes,

adding endings and doubling/dropping of final letters.

Finally, homophones are introduced. E.g. road & rode
