Fred is our phonics mascot!
Fred cannot talk in whole words, Fred can only sound words out. The aim is for the children to then hear those individual sounds and blend them together into the word.
During phonics time we use an actual Fred to sound words out and watch Fred games, they're a big hit! I've attached some links to Fred games so you can watch some together at home.
Any questions about our phonics scheme, how we teach phonics or how you can best support at home, do talk to us at the end of the day.
