Phonics is really important for reading and spelling and we are firming up our skills in Year 3. Try to use these activities at least 2 times this week - the more the better!

If you are finding Phase 5 hard, try Phase 3 instead to build your confidence and then come back to Phase 5.

Let us know of any specific sounds you would like more practice on through the year group email and we will focus on those in more depth next week!

Don't forget to send in pictures of your improved scores or you playing the games and we will add you to the Roll of Honour!

Phase 5 Sounds Song

If you listen to this each day and say the sounds and words as you see them, you'll soon be able to read all the sounds! Aim for at least twice a week.

Our Sounds this week are oa, oe, ow, o and o-e.

Watch this video to learn about the oa sound family. These are oa, oe, o, ow and o-e. Each one makes the same sound.
