This session will build on the knowledge and practice from the EYFS session and explores how to revisit and revise the basic code in Year 1, and extend children’s skills of listening to, discriminating and vocalising phonemes, blending and segmenting by looking at consonant clusters at the beginnings and ends of words. We will then go on to exploring the complexities of the English spelling system, looking at the complex code and how to develop children’s knowledge of alternative grapheme-phoneme representations and alternative pronunciations for known graphemes to develop skilled word reading and greater accuracy in spelling. We will also explore ways in which to support children to use and apply these skills in the context of quality texts and rich and purposeful writing opportunities across the provision.

This webinar is part of a two session package of webinars which provide participants with an introduction to the CLPE approach to phonics across EYFS and KS1. Schools can either book leaders on to both sessions for a complete overview, or book individual teachers on to the sessions that applies to the phases they teach.
