PHONICS

18/05/2020 Week 6

Phase 5a

We are continuing to revisit Phase 5 phonic sounds. As these sounds are digraphs (contain two letters) it can be a challenge for the children to remember them, especially when later on in Phase 5 when we will be learning alternative spellings for the same sound (e.g. ou, ow, ough etc.) 

You can visit Phonics play, a website that is used often in school, and access it during this period for free using the following login and username. The activities to look for in phonics play are highlighted in blue.
