Phonics, Reading And Writing
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.
You may also find the Phonics Play website useful.
Additionally, there is a great app called ‘Teach Your Monster to Read’ which is currently free to download from Wednesday 16th September until Tuesday 22nd September. The app is a not-for-profit app and is approved by the government's DfE Hungry Little Minds campaign and has been played by over 22 million children across the world. Once downloaded, there's nothing else to pay and if you want to play across a few devices, make sure you sign up for a free account at teachyourmonstertoread.com first.

It is important that the children continue to practise their spelling regularly at home. We have put together a range of fun and practical ideas for practising spellings from the statutory spelling lists. We have also included a guide to finding spelling activities on Purple Mash.
