For those already working in Phase 3

Last week was Phase 3 assessment!  By navigating back to this page you have concluded that your child is not yet ready to move to Phase 4 and needs to explore the Phase 3 programme further. 


There are two possible outcomes from your assessment last week...

Outcome 1 - Your child showed some knowledge of Phase 3, but overall has a lot of gaps in their learning and needs to repeat the whole of the Phase 3 programme.

Outcome 2 - Your child knows the majority of the Phase 3 content so only needs to recap a few sounds. 



Outcome 1 

Each week we will post a link at the top of this phonic's page which will take you to the right stage of the Phase 3 phonics programme. This will save you time searching through the previous week's pages to find the right week.  This week we have posted the link below.  Don't forget to continue to use the same structure to your phonics session to help you. 


Outcome 2

If your child has only shown a few gaps within their Phase 3 knowledge then now is the time to focus on this until you feel the gaps has closed.  When you feel confident that these gaps have been addressed you can revisit the assessment page (week eleven) and if they have closed the gaps then you can begin Phase Four (you will need to start from week one which is begins in week twelve on our Reception Home Learning page).  

If you are revisiting certain sounds you can go back to previous weeks activities set during Phase 3 by going into the different week's pages.  As Phase 3 introduces so many new sounds and HFWs it sadly isn't manageable for us to provide you with recap activities for each one, however please do not hesitate to resource your own. This is a great time to have a look online for any new ideas which are specific to that sound or sound that your child needs to embed. We have listed a few links below to help you get started.  For the next couple of weeks we will however post a few ideas or pieces of information that you may find useful to this stage in your child's phonic journey which we hope you will find useful to help bridge those gaps.


Whatever your next step, we truly hope that you have enjoyed teaching Phase 3 phonics and the reward of seeing your child learn new skills that you have taught them...whether it be just a few sounds or most. Good luck!
