Phonics Resources

Phonics is delivered in school using "Letters and Sounds" .  Each year group works within particular phases. Click on the relevant year group/phase to access phonics resources they can use.

To see how the phonics sounds should be pronounced, please see Oxford Owl's Pure Sounds video.
