Phase 1

Phase 1

Early phonics teaching in Nursery and at the start of Reception focuses on developing children’s listening skills. Early years environments do a lot of aural work at quite a slow pace, training children in awareness of sounds.

In Phase 1 phonics, children are taught about:
 

  • Environmental sounds
  • Instrumental sounds
  • Body percussion (e.g. clapping and stamping)
  • Rhythm and rhyme
  • Alliteration
  • Voice sounds
  • Oral blending and segmenting (e.g. hearing that d-o-g makes ‘dog’)
