Phase 1 Phonics

Early phonics teaching in Nursery and at the start of Reception focuses on developing children’s listening, attention, vocabulary and speaking skills

.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’)

 

Typical activities for teaching Phase 1 phonics include 'listening' walks, playing and identifying instruments, action songs, learning rhymes and playing games like I Spy and silly soup.

 

Silly soup is where we find things starting with the same sound to go in our soup.
