The Phonics Collection is useful for any teachers or departments that don’t currently teach phonics, or who want to extend their own resources for so doing.
The collection brings together all the resources created so far for the teaching and practising of each SSC (sound-symbol correspondence). Each NCELP lesson resource contains phonics activities. Initially, the SSC is presented in isolation, within a ‘source’ word, and with a further set of five ‘cluster’ words. Subsequent revisits involve a range of activities to practise both sound to print (e.g. transcription) and print to sound (e.g., read aloud). The collection brings together all of the resources for each SSC in one PPT, with the aim of enabling departments to build phonics into their existing Schemes of Work for current Year 7 and above.
How the phonics collection is set up and how to use the materials:
For easy reference the ‘Phonics Collection Links‘ excel spreadsheet provides a list of each of the SSC listed in the draft GCSE grammar appendices, and hyperlinks to each resource.
‘French Phonics Collection‘ includes examples of French phonics activities for all the SSC listed in the draft GCSE Subject Content.
‘German Phonics Collection‘ includes examples of German phonics activities for all the SSC listed in the draft GCSE Subject Content.
‘Spanish Phonics Collection‘ includes examples of Spanish phonics activities for all the SSC listed in the draft GCSE Subject Content.
