In Phonics, we continue to use Song of Sounds to develop our reading and writing skills. We are always singing the song and using actions to reinforce learning the graphemes. The children love to learn new graphemes everyday and use them in their reading and writing consistently.
A grapheme is a written symbol that represents a sound (phoneme). This can be a single letter, or could be a sequence of letters, such as ai, sh, igh, tch etc. So when a child says the sound /t/ this is a phoneme, but when they write the letter 't' this is a grapheme.
