Use our phonics phases sound mats to see what sounds your child will be taught when in their phonics learning journey.
The letter ‘c’ has a hard sound (/k/ as in cat) and a soft sound (/s/ as in cell). Usually, the ‘c’ is hard or soft depending on the vowel that follows it. This soft 'c' crossword helps your child practise this spelling pattern.
All these words include the same sound (/ai/) but it is represented by ‘ei’,‘eigh’ or ‘ey’. Underline the groups of letters making the /ai/ sound in each word, then cut the words out and put them in the correct column. Once you think you know the words, ask someone to dictate these sentences to you. Write them down and then check to see if you got the spellings right.
All of these words are missing the letters ‘ar’ in the middle. Add them in and read the words out loud. Write each word again three times so that you learn the spelling.
Read these words and say them out loud. The ‘y’ in the words makes three different sounds: /i/ as in cygnet, /igh/ as in high, /y/ as in yellow. Can you group them into the three sound columns below?
All of these words end in -il but the letters have been jumbled up. Can you unjumble them to make the correct words?
Can you find all the words in this wordsearch that end in -y?
All these words end in -ve (not many English words end in -v without an ‘e’!). Some of them have a long vowel sound (like ‘five’) and some of them have a short vowel sound (like ‘give’). Can you sort them into words with short vowels and words with long vowels?
In these words the /ee/ sound is written with the grapheme ‘ey’. Look through this nonsense passage and underline the ‘ey’ words. Then write each word out three times to help you learn them
When the graphemes ‘w’ or ‘qu’ are followed by the single vowel ‘a’, it usually represents the /o/ sound as in swan. For each of these words, add an ‘a’ to complete the word. Say the word out loud. Can you hear how the ‘a’ makes an /o/ sound? Then have a go at the wordsearch.
The letter ‘w’ followed by the ‘or’ grapheme makes the /er/ sound as in worm. Can you work out where these words should go in these sentences?
