What is phonics?
The alphabet contains only 26 letters. Spoken English uses about 44 sounds (phonemes).
Once children begin learning sounds, they are used quickly to read and spell words.
The phonics code breaker
Phoneme - a sound as it is said
Grapheme - a sound that is written
Digraph- two letters that work together to make the same sound
Trigraph - Three letters that work together to make the same sound
Split digraph - Two letters that work together to make the same sound, separated by another letter

On YouTube there is a channel called 'Letters and Sounds for Home and School'. These have daily lessons for reception and Year 1. The Year 1 sessions are a really good recap of alternative phonemes to help with spelling and reading words.
