Use the flashcards you have made to recall and recognise the sounds we have already learnt.

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!


Mr Early Years Phonics: Use these videos to catch up on last week’s learning! Mr Adderley teaches phonics with his son – you can use these videos to support your teaching or let Mr A do it for you! J
