Phonics and reading

The children are continuing to learn their phase 5 phonic sounds. We are concentrating on segmenting to read and write words containing the graphemes learnt. We will also be looking at alternative pronunciations for some sounds and looking at adding suffixes including; -ing, -est, -ed, -er and-s and –es for plurals.
