Phase 3

Thank you for showing an interest in Phase 3! 


Phase 3 is usually taught in January, although this may come sooner depending on the abilities of each child. When we begin Phase 3 in class we will also release all the information that you need to know here. 


For now, enjoy the journey of Phase 2. We love teaching phonics and seeing how it opens up a whole new world of discovery for every child. We hope you love it as much as us!


See you back here in a couple of months for more phonic fun.



















































































If your child has now come home with high-frequency word set 7, blending and segmenting set 6 and a set of Phase 3 phoneme flashcards then this is the page for you!


As we progress through the Phase 3 we will continue to upload the high-frequency word sets as well as the blending and segmenting sets. This is so that you have access to gain another copy should you need it.


Phase 3 is a big phase and contains a lot of new sounds and skills. It is common for most children to do Phase 3 phonics twice in order to embed all that is taught. It is an exciting phase where reading really begins to open up and their writing becomes more decodable each week. We hope you enjoy the next stage of your child's phonics journey.  Have fun!

Phase 3 Sound Flashcards

We know that some of our 'Blending and Segmenting Sets' do not exactly follow the same order from Week Six, Seven and Eight videos. This is due to the fact that the excellent videos that are made available by the YouTube channel have this year taken a couple of the sounds out of sequence to the Letters and Sounds planned programme, we are unsure why this is. We do not use these videos at school as we teach phonics ourselves and follow a well-planned scheme, however in order for your child to have access to excellent phonics teaching during lockdown we have provided you with their videos as well as our own documents that we have created which we use in school.  Thank you for your understanding. 
Don't forget to make use of other online resources and games too. On the Reception phonics homepage there are a host of website links that may be a great place to start for your child.  Enjoy!
