Videos to support Phonics at home

Welcome to the phonics zone!  Learning to read is the most important gift we can give to our children so whilst school is closed we will aim to provide you everything you need to help your child learn to read.  If after you have accessed any of our materials you have any questions, queries or need any support please give us a call at school on 01205 363210 and ask to speak to Mrs Smith or Miss Burt and we will do our best to help!

Phonics teaching is broken down into phases from 1 - 6.  You can access resources for the different phases below.  The children should know which phase they are currently working on but if you are unsure  please do get in touch with us.  It has been a long time since the children were in school so you may find your child would benefit with revisiting an earlier phase to the one that they were on in school.  This is fine, go at your child's pace.
