Raising standards in KS1 and Special Needs: helping every child to succeed. I have taught systematic phonics to all abilities for over 30 years - long before Letters and sounds. I am also a nature lover who hates to see science reduced to box-ticking when there is so much to discover about the wonderful world we live in. So, I produce Phonic resources that meet the real needs of children and teachers, along with nature resources to engage children in learning about the natural world.

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 learned the necessary skills to decode. They provide ample practice for students 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, reinforcement 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 leave a review if you find this product helpful. 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.

CVC/CCVC Words Phonics worksheets Phases 2, 3 and 4

(0)
A bumper pack of 70 differentiated phonics worksheets to support the teaching and learning of blending and segmenting cvc and cvcc/ccvc words with short vowel sounds (excluding ‘ck’), including a focus on consonant blends. Note - this pack is for use during Phases 2 and 3 once the initial sounds have been learnt. It doe snot include the digraphs from Phase 3. These can be found here. Here are worksheets to give plentiful blending and segmenting practice for all abilities. The sheets can be used with any synthetic, systematic phonic scheme and work well at stages 2, 3 and 4 of letters and sounds, once all of the intial sounds have been learnt. Many also find them helpful for older special needs pupils. Written to meet the needs of the average class, with a range of differentiated worksheets from which you are sure to find one to meet the needs of every pupil. Some children breeze through this stage quickly and you will find material to challenge them and to assess their readiness to move on. Others need much more reinforcement work and you will find here plenty of that too - a bountiful supply! Some sheets focus on blending, others on segmenting and some on both. Other sheets encourage the child to see letter patterns and similarities between words including a focus on rhyming. Hints on the best use of the sheets is provided - not least how to use them as an assessment tool. Suitable for use with SEND pupils and for reading catchup. The sheets can be enlarged for guided literacy sessions/whole class work. Have you seen ‘Sound-it-out’ Pack of CVC Games, and the ‘Sound-it-out’ Pack of CVCC Games’ which complement these worksheets making a good fun way of reinforcing learning? They are ideal for sending home for extra practice after a lesson, or for use by classroom assistants. Also Sound-it-out Initial Sounds Worksheets for those children not yet ready for blending.

8 Phonics Worksheets FREE

(13)
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.
