Phonics and Reading
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
Tricky Words: all of Phase 2 and 3
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.

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.
Below are Phase 2 and 3 sound mats and tricky word mats. Use these to support your child with their phonics. You could play a game of 'Can you put your finger on the sound/word...'
