At Whitemoor we follow the phonic scheme of Read Write Inc. This is systematic scheme where the children learn in groups of sounds called Set 1, Set 2 and Set 3. Over the course of the year your child will learn the sounds and have match reading books and writing activities that will link to these. 
In the Autumn term we focus on Set 1, in the Spring we focus on Set 2 and in the Summer we introduce Set 3 for them to then repeat again in Year 1 to ensure consolidation of the sounds. 
We also refer to the 'tricky words' as Red words and 'decodable words' as green words. Red words you cant sound out like /my/, /said/ and green words are words you can use the phonics to help e.g. /cat/, /dad/.
