Beanfield Primary School

Moving to decoding

Once your child is confident blending sounds in the Blending books, they will have daily phonics lessons in small groups and will start to read Storytime Phonics books.

Every day, your child will have a Speedsound session to learn to read new sounds, practice reading the sounds they know and practice writing the sounds they know.

Also, every day they will read a Storytime book to learn to practice to read 'green words' These are words that they can 'Fred Talk' to segment and decode using the phonics sounds they know.

In the Storytime books they will also learn to read 'red words' which are tricky words that are not phonetically decodable.

While your child is learning to blend in school you can help them by finding the time to listen to them read their phonics book regularly reading at home.
