Phonics at Home

Phonics games to play at home:


Sound bingo:

Write 6 sounds on a piece of paper, call out different sounds and your child is to cross them off until they’re all gone, then they shout BINGO!


Segment iSpy:

Play iSpy, but instead of saying the initial sound, segment a word, for example:

c-oa-t or d-o-g… your child has to blend the word back together and tell you what the word is.


Word bingo:

When your child is able to read simple 3 letter words, write 3/4 on a piece of paper. Call out the words until they are all gone, then they shout BINGO!

Support your child to segment and blend when reading the words.


Remember you have your phonics books in your book bag to help you with your phonics learning at home.

This is the progression of phase 2 in school.
