Online phonics lessons for Letters and Sounds – Reception and Year 1

Online phonics lessons are available from Letters and Sounds for home and school

Welcome to the Letters and Sounds for Home and School channel. This resource is designed by experts for use at home with children who are unable to attend school. Evidence shows that learning is most effective when children are taught by sticking to a particular programme. If you are not sure what programme your child’s school uses, please contact the school for advice.

New lessons are uploaded at 9am on week days during term time.

Reception: Teaching children to read letters and begin to blend to read words.

Year 1: For children who can blend and read words such as ‘stamp’, ‘chair’ and ‘green’.

Year 2 Phonics Screening Check Revision (Autumn Term only) Daily lessons to review Phases 4 and 5 to help children read words in the PSC.

Learning to Blend: Additional blending practise for children and are not suitable for Reception children in the Autumn Term as they contain letters and sounds that have not been taught.
