Daily Phonics lessons

Please find below resources for phonics learning. I have included phase 3, 4, 5 and 6 morning starter powerpoints. These each include many short activities that can be dipped in and out of and should be used for around 5 minutes at a time.

I have also created links to Letters and Sounds videos, they are quite lengthy at around 20 minutes long and there would be no need to use the other resources if you choose to watch them.

If your child is in year 2 and is a free or competent reader, then please use the resources listed on below for Phase 6 or access SpellingPlay Year 2 where you will find games and activities to support hase 6 spelling rules.

If your child is in Year 1 or in Year 2 and is developing their reading and spelling, then please start with the Letters and Sounds videos or the Phase 3, 4 and Phase 5 resources. (The videos are around 20 mins long)

If you would like guidance on which phase to start your child on, please email me at: jpearson@netherfield.e-sussex.sch.uk

I have also included the common exception word lists relevent to your child's year group. Take 2 or 3 words a week for your child to read fluently and then spell accurately.(Resources on the main Sapphire learning projects page)

CBBC Alphablocks is also fantastic and fun way for your child to develop their phonic skills. These short videos are readily available on BBC iplayer and YouTube. Children also particulary like Geraldine the Giraffe on YouTube!
