Phonics : Phase 4 Sounds
We do not teach the children any new sounds during this phase. We continue to use and the sounds previously taught within phase 2 and 3.
The purpose of this phase is to consolidate children’s knowledge of graphemes in reading and spelling words containing adjacent consonants (br, spl) and polysyllabic words (helpdesk, windmill).
This phase can be taught alongside phase 3 and phase 5 teaching.
