Fabulous Phonics Fun

During Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 your child will be learning about the sounds which make up words.  Many parents have asked us how they can support their children at home.

The key thing is to make it fun!  Using flashcards within games or as clues in a treasure hunt can be a great way to keep your child interested and engaged.

There are some brilliant websites which can be an exciting resource to support your child.

Phonics play is a website we use within school and can also be accessed at home.

Mr Thorne Does Phonics has a YouTube channel which the children love.  This is particularly useful as he demonstrates how to say each sound and gives examples of words containing them.

You may find this YouTube clip helpful as it clearly shows how to form each letter.

ICT games have some interactive games which your child might enjoy.

Teach Your Monster to Read is an award winning website which has excellent associated apps.


These apps are also very useful.
