Thank you so much to the parents who attended the Monster Phonics session this week. It's always great to see parents supporting school and working together. Do not worry if you were unable to attend you can always contact school for any support and you will find the power point presentation below.
Monster Phonics Parents Session: Wednesday 5th October 2022
Come a long and attend the session. Open to Elm and Beech parents. But please feel free to attend if you feel this will benefit your child or pop into school to speak to Mrs Davies (Phonics Lead), who is happy to answer questions you may have.
We are very excited to announce that arriving at Coppice Farm soon is ...............MONSTER PHONICS!
What is Monster Phonics?
The 26 letters of the alphabet and combinations of these letters make 44 speech sounds in English. The 44 sounds (phonemes) are spelt by 144 different letter combinations (graphemes). For example, the sound A is spelt several different ways, including ay (play) and ai (train).
Traditional ways of learning to spell can be time-consuming and for some children they are ineffective. Monster Phonics teaches children to read by enabling them to identify the individual graphemes (letter combinations) ad blend the sounds (phonemes) together to read the word.
To support this process, Monster Phonics uses the 10 monsters to categorises all sounds into 10 simple areas. Furthermore, each monster has a different colour and that colour represents that way of spelling the sound.
