This half term we are going to send the Phase 4 time to read sheets to be completed at home. Any children attending school will also be completing the same sheets. The children in Reception have not been taught phase 4 previously at school and therefore we thought it might be useful to give you some additional information about this phase.
The purpose of this phase is to consolidate children’s previous knowledge. They should now be blending confidently to work out new words. They should be starting to be able to read words straight off, rather than having to sound them out. They should also be able to write every letter mostly correct. They should be able to say all previous phonemes they have been taught in phase 2 (s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d,g,o,c,k,ck,e,u,r,h,b,f,ff,l,ll,ss) and phase 3 (j,v,w,x,y,z,zz,qu,ch,sh,th,ng,ai,ee,igh,oa,oo,ar,or,ur,ow,oi,ear,air,ure,er).
Phase 4 concentrates on using children’s previous knowledge on phase.2 and 3 sounds to introduce adjacent consonant. Adjacent consonants are when two or three consonants appear next to each other in a word, but they keep their own sound when blended. For example, if you say the word stop the ‘s’ and the ‘t’ are adjacent consonants and when segmented into the sounds s-t-o-p they keep their own sounds and have their own sound buttons.
Adjacent consonants are different to digraphs or trigraphs such as sh, ch, th, igh because when these two or three letters are next to each other they make one new sound.
The reason we need to teach children the adjacent consonants is the leap from reading 3 sound words (hat) to 4 sound words (limp) is very difficult for many early readers. The step to 5 sound words (print) is even greater. Therefore, children need to spend time learning the adjacent consonants to help them read 4 or more sound letter words.
Please remember that all children learn and their own pace and If you feel your child is not ready to move onto phase 4 please continue to work on the sounds, you think they need to work on.
All of the phase 3 time to read sheets are available on the school website and there are a range of other resources and activity ideas available online. Phonics play is a good resource (https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk) and provide online activities that most children enjoy. Also Twinkl (https://www.twinkl.co.uk) have a range of activities.
If you have any questions or need any help, please contact your child’s class teacher.
