We are coming to the end of learning the phase 3 sounds. We would have normally taken the next couple of terms to really embed the children's knowledge and use of phonics in order to put them on good grounding to continue on their phonic journey in Y1. I have tried a few things out at home which all didn't quite fit what I wanted. Through various teaching contacts, I have become aware of a Department of Education backed phonics videos on youtube that deliver a full 20 minute phonic lesson very similar to how we do them at school. If you can, it is well worth doing them. Search for 'letters and sounds at home and school' on youtube and use the Reception lessons. 


I will be using them more next week as we finish the sound learning.
