What age is phase 5 phonics taught?
Phase 5 is typically taught in year 1, ready for the phonics screening check, although some children in the early years may also be ready for phase 5. Children starting phase five will already be able to read and spell CVC words and words with adjacent consonants. In phase 5 they will further develop their phonic knowledge and learn alternative spellings and alternative pronunciations for phonemes and graphemes they already know.
