SATPIN Activities {Fun Phonics}

Check out the Best SATPIN Activities for some Phonics Fun with your EYFS kids. Teaching beginning sounds has never been easier with our hands-on Letters and Sounds SATPIN teacher printables.

Learning to tell the difference between sounds is a key Early Years literacy skill and the first step in learning to read and write. But getting started with the right phonics activities can be overwhelming!

That’s where we come in with our “Must Have” Letters and Sounds Phonics Games !

With our engaging, hands-on SATPIN Activities you can beat the overwhelm and get your children segmenting and blending effortlessly and without the overwhelm.


So why start introducing Phonics in the SATPIN order instead of alphabetically? Well there’s a good reason, research & evidence! 

Using the SATPIN letters and sounds order means that students progress naturally and quickly from learning letters & sounds to word building. Many first words can be created using combinations of the  SATPIN letter order, e.g. at, sat, pin, pan, tin…  compared to creating words using a,b,c,d,e!

So the SATPIN order is perfect for your phonics program. (And used by Jolly Phonics Too!)

SATPIN letter order is in Phase 2 of the Letters and Sounds Synthetics Phonics Program. There are 6 Phases in all, on the DfE website. Children entering Phase Two of the phonics program, have completed Phase One and will have experience with phonics in listening activities, including songs, stories and rhymes.

Phase One students can distinguish between speech sounds and many will be able to blend and segment words orally. If students are unable to do this they are not ready to progress into Phase Two, and will need more time on Phase One.

Phase Two is where the SATPIN sequence is formally introduced. The purpose of Phase Two is to teach at least 19 letters, and move children on from oral blending and segmentation to blending and segmenting with letters to create words.

The original Letters and Sounds program suggested order for teaching letters is slightly different to the combinations used in most classrooms today, but includes the same letters.  The original letters and sounds order consisted of 5 sets of letters:

  • Set 1 – s, a, t, p
  • Set 2 – i, n, m, d
  • Set 3 – g, o, c, k
  • Set 4 – ck, e, u, r
  • Set 5 – h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss

Over time this order has evolved into the SATPIN letter order, which includes letter order sets:

  • set 1 – satpin 
  • set 2 – ckehrm 
  • set 3 – dgoulf 
  • set 4 -bjzwvyxq 

In addition to this our research found another set of letter  combinations, including:

  • msta
  • ocdh
  • pifr
  • bjzw
  • vyxq
  • bdua (letter confusion)

Using this research we have developed a stack of Letters and Sounds resources to use in your classroom. There’s posters, clip cards, spinner games, matching cards, sound sorts and more…

Use the SATPIN teaching printables to build an effective phonics program and get your students will learn:

    • s,a,t,p,i,n letters and sounds
    • use  s,a,t,p,i,n, letters to blend and sound words with s,a,t,p,i,n initial sounds. e.g. s-a-t sat
    • segment s,a,t,p,i,n, words
    • use words s,a,t,p,i,n words to create simple sentences
