Phonics & Spelling
Phonics Support (Reception to Year 2)
Below are links to each of the phonemes (sounds) that children learn during each phonics phase. Practising these regularly will help your child with reading and spelling.
For an extra challenge, children could make their own video of them saying the sounds and send it to their teachers.
Phase 5 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3S5sJw7MfI (Children should be secure with phase 5 at the end of Year 1)
http://www.letters-and-sounds.com - also has lots of interactive games which you can play. These all link with the programme that we follow in school.
Spelling Support (Year 2 -6)
Learning those ‘tricky words’ or ‘common exception’ words can sometimes be a chore at home. However, using the following website allows you to input your own word list and learn the words in a fun interactive way.
However, if you would like time away from screens games like ‘Hangman’ and ‘scrabble’ or chalk in the garden can be great ways to practise spellings.
