Keep practising all your phase 2 and phase 3 sounds. Could you set up a treasure hunt- write down all of the phase 3 sounds from the sound mat and hide them around the garden or house- children then need to go and find the sound that you ask for, you could do the same with tricky words or simple words using phase 3 sounds to practise reading. Also see attached a tricky word song to watch-be aware you'll be singing it all day!

As you are continuing to practise your new phonemes, it is good practice to consolidate your new sounds and tricky words by playing games which involve reading words and sentences.
Using the link below to phonics play (which is free at the moment) to play, have fun and learn!
Please feel free to challenge your child - if they are ready- to practise phase 4 sounds and words.
For Phonics Revision I recommend the BBC Bitesize website. Fantastic videos with the Phase 3 sounds and some example words.
Below are all the phase 2 and 3 sound mats and tricky words for phases 2, 3 and 4.
It is important that your child continues to independently learn to read and write using these sounds and to build on what they know.
We have already listed wonderful free sites your child can use to support them with their learning.
There are also lots of practical ideas you can play in the home/garden to keep your child busy, motivated whilst still learning.
You can also hide sounds or words around the home or garden for your child to find and then practise writing sentences using those.
If you need any support please, please email us and we will help you as best as we can
Phase 3 Tricky Words
Practise reading and writing Phase 3 Tricky words:
he, she, we, me, be, you,
her, was, they, my
If you want to try something different:
1) write the words on post it notes and stick them around the house for your child to find and read back to you
2) write the words in flour - a tray with a little bit of flour
3) write the words in shaving gel/cream - a tray or plate with some shaving gel
4) paint or draw the words in different colours
Phonics Play is free !!!
If you go onto their website there are numerous games to play enabling your child to continue to develop their reading using phase 2 and 3 sounds.
Below are the links to the phase 2 and 3 phoneme mats. These will show you all the sounds we use to read and write with. You can use these as a guide to support your child with their sentence writing.
Next sounds to learn/revise:
Mrs Farrel's group - ow, oi
Mrs Day's group: oa, oo
Mrs Gloster's/Klofik's group: ai, ee
Miss Boyle's group: ch,sh
Use the sheet attached as guidance.
Please continue to practice your sounds at home and reading simple words and captions. We will update this page with some online lessons daily.
