Phase 2 Phonics Letters SoundsLast week we completed the end of our phase 2 phonics. We will now spend our weeks up until Christmas reviewing these sounds, as it is important that children are fully immersed and secure in their use of phase 2 sounds before moving onto phase 3. We will be using our remaining time in Autumn term 2 to develop their confidence in phase 2 word blending, as this is an incredibly important foundation on which we will build their future phonics knowledge.
