Phonics  Worksheets for Phases 3 and 4

Phonics Worksheets for Phases 3 and 4

(0)
114 fully differentiated practice sheets covering all of the digraphs and trigraphs for phases 3 and 4 of the UK Gov. Letters and Sounds phonic programme, except ‘ure’. Sounds covered: ck, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air and er, in this order. Sheets with mixed sounds are included too, as well as plenty of sentences to read and puzzles. Great for revision, general class work or homework. I provide up to four sheets at two levels for most sounds: the first set for phase 3, with no consonant blends, and the second for phase 4 including words with consonant blends. Thereby giving plenty of scope for differentiation. Fully differentiated, they meet the real needs of the average class and are fully systematic: no words are introduced for which the student has not yet learnt the necessary skills to decode. They provide ample practice for student in both reading and spelling. Suitable for use with other schemes as long as you make sure that your children know the sounds necessary to complete the sheet. Use them for assessment, re-enforcement activities; blow them up for whole class/group teaching or send them home for extra practice once taught in class. Copy, reduce, enlarge as much as you like. Please see the book of Initial sounds Worksheets, and the CVC/CVCC words Worksheets for Phases 2, early 3 and simple cvcc words in Phase 4.

8 Phonics Worksheets FREE

(8)
Eight Free phonics worksheets, covering cvc words, cvcc words, ‘ck’, ‘ee’/‘oo’, ‘sh’, ‘ar’ and ‘or’ providing valuable back up work to lessons. Great assessment tools. Written for ages 5-6 but can also be used with older children requiring catchup help or those with special needs. These sheets are compatible with all phonics schemes, however as different schemes introduce sounds at different time, just check that your pupil knows all the necessary digraphs to complete the sheet. For example, the word ‘shark’ has both ‘sh’ and ‘ar’ and so both should have been learnt before expecting the child to read and spell this word.

Spring Project  Ideas for KS1 - suitable for home or school use

Spring Project Ideas for KS1 - suitable for home or school use

(0)
For teachers or homeschooling, here is an ample supply of Spring Science, art and craft activities for 3 to 8 yr olds. Suitable for use at home - in the garden or local spaces, or the playground and local spaces to the school. Woods, ponds/rivers, the local park, the school garden all provide opportunities for many investigations. Those that live near the country will be able to look at hedgerows and verges. Those in towns and cities need not feel deprived - even weeds are blooming at this time of year and afford sufficient material to study. I have not linked activities to any set curricula as most teachers will easily be able to see which ones cover which parts of the curriculum relevant to where they work. I have labeled each activity with a key below for easy reference. Included are relevant recording sheets where I have felt they were suitable, however, with young children I personally always find recording nature study through artwork keeps enthusiasm alive well into the future and gives far more opportunities to reinforce learning while we make and talk, than completing a worksheet can ever do.
