Phonics is an important technique to help with reading and spelling.  


It breaks down words into different sounds that children can identify in words to help with reading. Children can also use phonics to sound out words to spell them.


In Year 2, once children have understood and can implement the phonemes within the Letters and Sounds program they move onto a variety of different techniques:

  • homophones
  • different suffixes
  • past tense
  • prefixes
  • spelling techniques
  • syllables
  • possessive apostrophes
