The children will receive a daily 20 minute phonics lesson.

As the children begin Year 1, we continue to use and revise Level 2 and 3 phonemes from Twinkl Phonics during our daily phonics lessons. We also introduce the children to Level 4 and Level 5 once they are ready. All the phonemes they learn have got actions to accompany them and to help the children remember them. 


Each level is outlined below:

s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, l, ff, ll, ss.
