Phase 4 Phonics

The main aim of this phase is to consolidate the children's knowledge. This phase helps children to blend and segment words with adjacent consonants for example, 'truck' and 'help'. These adjacent consonant phonemes can both be heard when you say the word which makes them different from a digraph, where there are two letters that make just one sound. Children are introduced to multi-syllabic words such as 'starfish' and learn another set of 'tricky words'.
