We have now covered all of the Phase 2 and 3 sounds. To help me allocate activities for your child on Phonics Bug, please could you complete the phonics check activity. You can download and print the document below. If you do not have a printer, you can copy the letters on a piece of paper and use it in the same way.
Show your child the letters and ask them to say the sound. If your child is able to say the sound without any prompting/clues from you, tick the box to show they know the sound. Once you have completed the check, make sure your child's name is on the paper, take a photo of it and email it to me
Once I have received this information I will be able to set reading books for your child. The information will really help me to get the allocation of books right as books that are too hard will put your child off reading and books that are too easy will not help your child to make progress.
username: your child's name and first letter of their last name-e.g. SamH
school code: gpwk
We have now covered all Phase 2 and 3 sounds and tricky words. Click on the ‘My Stuff’ tab and re-watch videos of sounds your child is not sure of. Your child needs to be able to say the sound when they see the letters and write the letters when they hear the sound. They need to be able to apply all these letters and sounds when reading and spelling words.
If your child has been allocated a reading book, please read daily with your child and record this in their reading record book as normal.
Phonics Play have again made access to games and resources free during lockdown. The children love playing these games as part of our lessons in school.
Sounds: Phase 2 and 3 up to oo, ar, or

Read Write Inc.
In class, we use the Read Write Inc. phonics flashcards with a picture cue to put each sound into context. Read Write Inc. phonics lessons are free to access on YouTube during lockdown. Watch videos for Set 1 Speed Sounds to learn a sound. Set 1 Word Time Reading supports blending to read words. Set 1 Spelling supports spelling and writing.
More phonics games to play!
Please also practice the activities in your child's phonics pack daily. They need to recognise each letter by saying the sound. They also need to be able to write the letter when they hear a sound. Have a go at reading and writing some of the words suggested in the pack.
