Learning to tell the difference between sounds is a key Early Years literacy skill and the first step in learning to read and write. National reports on the teaching of reading in the US, UK and Australia support the inclusion of phonological awareness in early literacy programs. Hill (2016, p.110) notes the importance of phonological awareness as ‘a precursor to decoding’ which needs to be explicitly taught (Adams, 2011).
Letters and Sounds is a phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007 to help teachers explicitly teach phonics. The program will prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills.
Letters and Sounds Planning Phases
The DfE’s Letters and Sounds program is a systematic way of teaching children to read by linking sounds (phonemes) to the symbols (letters) which represent them (graphemes).
The phonics skills and knowledge children require for reading and writing is broken into 6 phases which are taught in Kindergarten to Year 2.
Our Letters and Sounds Phonics Games align with the Letters and Sounds program, a comprehensive phonics resource widely used in schools. This program is divided into six phases, each focusing on specific phonics skills and knowledge. Let’s take a closer look at each phase:
6 Letters & Sounds Phases
Our Letters and Sounds Phonics Games cover all these phases, providing targeted practice and reinforcement of phonics skills at each stage. They include activities for sound discrimination, blending, segmenting, word reading, and spelling. These games can be used as whole-class activities, small-group instruction, or independent practice
