Be on time..... gates open at 8:40 and close at 8:50 - learning starts at 8.40am in class.....



Last week we finished off the alphabet with:

 x   y   z   zz   qu

This week we are moving onto digraphs:

sh   ch   th   ng


Use the flashcards you have made to recall and recognise the sounds we have already learnt and to support you in learning to recognise the new ones.

If you know all of phase 2 confidently you don’t need to practise this as much as you would with the new sounds.

New sounds should be practised daily!


Use these videos to support your learning from last week if you need some more help to remember the new phonemes.

Use phonics play to support your learning:

You need to select phase 3 games and the sound that you are learning that day!

Some phase 3 games might have “sets”, if so pick set 6-7 as these will cover what your child has already learnt! Anything else will require a lot of support from you to play.


Also, log in to Tapestry daily for challenges and phonics activities!
