  • We have now finished phase 3 (a group of sounds) so, we are going to spend some time revisiting challenging sounds and playing games to support our sound knowledge.
  • Every day we are going to do: flashcards/game/weird writing/phonics play.


  • First, Watch Miss Sutton’s video.


  • Join in, saying the sounds on the flashcards.
  • Game: Score a sound – choose 5x Phase 3 sounds from your sound mat – (attached in resources). Write them onto post-it notes/sticky labels/pieces of paper. Attach them onto some mugs/bowls. Throw the ball and see if you can score a sound! What sound did you get? Shout out your sound and think of a word with that sound in it.
  • Weird writing: Choose a food to write in – Baked beans, ketchup, mayo! Whatever you like (and whatever your grown-ups say is ok!) to practise any sounds that you have found tricky in phase 3. Check the sound mat to remind you of the sounds we have learnt.
  • Phonics play – Choose a game to play to recap Phase 3 sounds.
