KS1 – Year 1

Key Stage 1 – Year 1

In Year 1, the children will continue to take part in daily Phonics sessions which follow a systematic progression of phonics learning which will cover:

  • All the phonemes of English words (Phase 5 is taught in Year 1)
  • Correct pronunciation of the phonemes
  • All commonly occurring grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs)
  • The correct formation of all graphemes
  • Blending for reading
  • Segmenting for writing
  • The sequenced learning of appropriate tricky words.

The children will initially recap Phase 3 and Phase 4 before moving on to learning Phase 5 grapheme phoneme correspondences.
