These terms apply to the units of sound that begin and end syllables. In the word dad, which contains one syllable, the onset is d and the rime ad. In the word play, the onset is pl and the rime ay.

Teaching phonics effectively and relevantly can take place after reading sessions and through some of the texts that the teacher presents to the class. Teaching about letter sounds can be introduced and applied after a child has read with the teacher. Words, the letters they contain and the sounds of these letters can be discussed when they are relevant to the learner’s needs and when they help with recognizing the actual words that are being read. Teaching phonics in this way is purposeful and is reinforced by being applied immediately or when the child next reads.

In applying skills and knowledge the reader is guided by the expectation that what is read should make sense. When teaching children to read we need to make sure that they can draw upon their knowledge of letters and words as they read, apply their knowledge about oral communication to texts and understand that reading is a purposeful and meaning-making activity. The model of reading depicted in the National Literacy Strategy Framework for Teaching (DfEE, 1998a) and the separation of the teaching of reading into word level work (phonological awareness, phonics, word recognition and graphic knowledge), sentence level work (grammatical awareness) and text level work (comprehension) recognizes the need for children to learn about and use a range of strategies in order to become successful readers.
