Please check here weekly for lots of phonics activities!
Our phonics focus for this term would have been to develop and embed our understanding of Phase 3 phonics and to begin to work on Phase 4. Before we left school, Reception children started to explore the different aspect of Phase 4 phonics such as final consonant blends. Below are lots of activities and games that you can print at home to support your child with both their Phase 3 and 4 journey. Check back weekly as we will put a new Phase 4 focus on each week, Week 2 is there ready for you, in this week we would be looking at initial consonant blends.

Lots of you have been asking for some phonic games, here are some fantastic websites to support with phase 3 and phase 4 phonics. Give them a go and let us know which ones you liked!
Click the titles to take you to the website!
Forest Phonics: This game is a fun way to teach simple spelling patterns. Choose a spelling pattern and you will be prompted to spell approximately ten words using that spelling pattern, e.g. ‘ee’ words. The sounds are easy to move around using the drag and drop sound cards. Each correct answer is rewarded with a funny animation. If you need help you can hear the word again or take a quick peek at how to correctly spell the word. The game covers 30 spelling patterns across phase 3 and 4 and also includes some phase 5 if you are ready for a challenge!
Poop Deck Pirates: This is a Reception favourite! This phonics game can really help you to build words, your child needs to read the words on the golden coins and decide if they are real words or not. This games links to phases 2, 3 and 4.
Alien Escape: This fun game develops grapheme-phoneme correspondence, blending, segmentation, reading fluency within Phase 4 phonics. Children are encouraged to spell words such as c-r-i-s-p in order for the alien to escape to his spaceship! This game is lots of fun and really challenges children to apply their phase 4 knowledge to spell and read a variety of words.
Phase 4 Word Pairs: This game is great for developing grapheme recognition, sounding out, blending, visual memory and auditory memory. When you start the game you see a set of cards face down. The object of the game is for the child to match pairs of cards by clicking on two cards to see what is on the other side. Some are picture cards, and some are word cards. Match a picture to the correct word and that pair will disappear. The game ends when the child successfully matches all the card pairs. Enjoy!
Here are some tricky word songs that we love singing at school to help us remember those words that we can’t sound out. Hope you have fun singing along!
