Subject Focus - Phonics

What is Phonics?

- Phonics is a method used for teaching children how to read and write the alphabetic language. It is done by demonstrating the relationship between the sounds of the spoken language and the letters.

- Phonics helps children hear, identify and use different sounds that distinguish one word from another.

- Written language can be compared to a code - i.e. knowing the sound that  individual letters make when they are combined will help the children decode words they read.

- Understanding phonics will also help children know which letters or combinations of letters to use when they are writing.
