Phonics equips your child with the tools of an 'early reader'. It allows young readers to decode/blend new words as they read. For example your child will learn to push together the sounds in t-a-p to read 'tap'. Phonics also enables your child to segment (write) words, stretching out the sounds they can hear e.g. dog d-o-g.
Please watch the video below to listen to the pure phonics sounds.
