By the end of Year 1, we are aiming for children to be secure in using all the sounds from Phase 2 to Phase 5 in their reading. One of the best ways of becoming secure in these sounds is using flashcards daily.
Please refer to the information booklet below if you would like some ideas for phonics activities. There is also a useful glossary of phonics terms. We have also included all the sounds mats for your use.
Please log in to our reading scheme called Bug Club. The website is: www.activelearnprimary.co.uk
The scheme has a comprehensive collection of high quality reading books for the children to read at home. so your child can access this resource at home. If you have any issues with your child’s login and/or password, please speak to your child’s teacher.
There are lots of useful websites with phonics information and games. Here are a range of different ones you could use at home:
The Letters and Sounds website has lots of information, resources and games linked to each of the phonics phases.
Oxford Owl has a whole selection of free eBooks, some with linked activities. These are banded according to age group.
We like Mr Thorne does Phonics. This is a link to his YouTube channel so be aware there may be adverts/videos may auto play.
Phonics Play has a selection of free and fun resources you can use at home with your child. It also gives you the option to create your own account on the website however this will need to be paid for.
To access daily lessons that makes phonics learning easier please watch videos and read flashcards on Monster Phonics: https://monsterphonics.com/home-learning-in-the-covid-19-lockdown/year-1-home-learning/
