In Reception phonic recall is developed in many different ways, children explore their learning through games and activities.

Phonics in Reception

Synthetic Phonics is  a method of teaching reading and writing in which words are broken down into their smallest units of sound, these are known as phonemes. 

Children learn to associate writen letters or groups of letters with a given sound, these we call graphemes. 

Sounds are then joined or ‘blended’ together into words for reading or, conversely, whole words are broken down or ‘segmented’ into their sounds for writing. 

Children in Reception will learn their sounds in the order outlined below. Level 1 is all about developing listening skills and continues to run alongside all sounds as they are taught.

At Mayfield Primary School we follow the Twinkl phonics scheme, The order of sounds is outlined below:
