Phonics is a reading teaching method which shows children how to link sounds (phonemes) and the letter symbols that represent them (graphemes).

In UK primary schools, children learn phonics in phases: in Nursery children learn environmental sounds (Phase 1 Phonics), in Reception they learn the sounds that letters make (Phase 2 and 3) and more complicated spelling patterns and tricky words (Phase 4) and in Year 1 they learn new ways of spelling each sound, alternative pronunciations and about split digraphs (Phase 5).
