This week, we will be looking back at the different phase 3 sounds we learnt last term. We will be practising reading and writing these different sounds and then using them to read and write different words and sentences.

To support your child at home, you can click on the ‘Jolly Phonic’ songs and ‘ABC Joined’ app above. Both are strategies we use to help the children learn how to read and write their sounds.

[NB, you have to pay a small fee for the ‘abcJoined’ app but it is fantastic value and well worth it]
