Phonics Phase 6

Phase Six


Children should know most of the common grapheme- phoneme correspondences. They should be able to read hundreds of words, doing this in three ways:


  • Reading the words automatically if they are very familiar;
  •  Decoding them quickly and silently because their sounding and blending routine is now well established.
  • Decoding them aloud.
  •  Introduce past tense
  • Adding suffixes
  • Supporting the application of spelling in children’s own writing.
