Phonics and Key Words

The Summer Term is where we consolidate all the sounds we have learnt across the year.

Any work you can do to revise these sounds, particularly the Phase 3 digraphs (1 sound made of 2 letters e.g. ai, ee) and trigraphs (1 sound made of 3 letters e.g. igh) would be great.

Twinkl is the resource we use in school so I would recommend using their website for resources. The Powerpoints are excellent and self-explanatory, they contain a story which introduces the sound, songs and actions and a couple of games for the children to play.


The sounds I would suggest recapping are:

All phase 2 –

s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f/ff, l/ll, ss


Phase 3 –

j, v, w, x

y, z/zz, qu, ch

sh, th (voice box off, as in moth), th (voice box on, as in feather), ng

ai, ee, igh, oa

oo (short as in book), oo (long as in moon), ar, or

ur, ow, oi, ear

air, ure, er

Don't forget the tricky words are in the front of your child’s reading diary and if you want to practice spelling these that would be great too.

I have added ‘Tricky Word’ lists onto Spelling Shed for the children to practice.
