We are now starting to learn Phase 4 phonics.
This involves learning to blend and segment longer and compound words often known as CVCC, CCVC words etc. At this point it is important that the children learn the 5 vowel sounds and know that the other letters are called consonants.
They will be learning to blend adjacent consonants together e.g. 'mp' 'nt' 'nd' etc. at the beginning and end of words e.g. lamp, bent, land, grin.
