Phase 3 introduces children to some of the more difficult and/or less commonly used phonemes. There are mainly made up of two letters such as ch, ar, ow and ee.
Children are taught to recognise more tricky words, including ‘me,’ ‘was,’ ‘my,’ ‘you’ and ‘they’.
They learn the names of the letters, as well as the sounds they make.
Activities might include learning mnemonics (memory aids) for tricky words, practising writing letters on mini whiteboards, using word cards and singing songs like the Alphabet Song.
