  2. What is Phonics?  Phonics is a method for teaching reading  and writing the English language.  The goal of phonics is to enable beginning readers to decode new written words by sounding them out. Pembroke Primary
  3. The difference between: -Letter names Each letter has a name This link will guide you with letter names: -Letter sounds Each letter has a sound This link will guide you with letter sounds Primary
  4. Learning the letter sounds – Term 2 – New English Phonics Scheme – BIG CAT Sounds that are going to be done in Term 2: s, a, t, i ,p, n, c, k, ck, e, o, r, m, d, g, u, l, h, f, b, ai , j, oa, ee In the English alphabet there are 26 letters.

  7. Letter formation -Capital letters are being introduced in term 2. We call them also – The Upper Case -When using The Lower Case, PRECURSIVE letters are used. That is letters that have ‘exit strokes’ (flick) to encourage cursive writing at later stages. -However children are also exposed to PRINT letters especially in books. Pembroke Primary
  8. Blending Blending means sounding out the letters Example: s – u – n = sun c – a – t = cat Our green copybook (called Grammar) has lists of words that children can: SPELL – BLEND – READ Pembroke Primary
  9. Decoding - Chopping Decoding works in the opposite way. When child can blend properly, one can introduce decoding. Give the child a word and ask him/her to give you the sounds in that word. Important that you use a finger for each sound. Example – pin (show 3 fingers) – p i n Sessions from Big Cat Software are being done everyday in class. Pembroke Primary
  10. Games and Activities that can be done at home: - I spy something beginning with …. - Counting sounds in a word - Rhyming words game (example: cat, rat, mat, sat…. - Take away a sound (example: “van” -taking away the “v” and replacing it with “f” is fan Pembroke Primary
  11. Tricky/Fast words In year 1 we have 60 ‘irregular keywords’ called ‘tricky words’. We cannot spell and blend tricky words. They have to be learnt by heart. These are words which are frequently used in books. A sheet with these 60 words was given to all the children in Year 1 and we are shading with a yellow crayon all the new words that we do every week. Pembroke Primary
  12. 3rd Term During the 3rd term the children will be doing other 20 sounds. z, w, oo (as in wood), oo (as in cool), ie, v, y, ch, sh, th (as in that), th (as in thank), ng, x, qu, ar, er, ou, oi, ue and or. Dictations and Creative Writing will follow during the third term. Pembroke Primary
  13. Dictation -After the Easter holidays we will be having Spelling games/dictations in class. -These are done every Monday morning. Important that parents sign on the Dictation copybook every week and that corrections have to be done when necessary. -Both Maltese and English dictations will be given and words to be studied are to be given in a form of list to all the children beforehand.
