Supporting your child at home
We follow the Letters and Sounds scheme supported by the Jolly Phonics actions.
In Reception, the children will be learning Phase 2 and 3 sounds and actions.
The links below will support your child to say each Phase 2 phoneme (sound) correctly using the Jolly Phonics action. Phase 3 sounds introduce digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters which make one sound).
Jolly Phonics: Sounds and Actions. (Phase 2).
All About Digraphs: Jolly Phonics (Phase 3).
(Please note: These videos focus on the Jolly Phonics sounds and actions. Following the Letters and Sounds scheme, the 'ou', 'ue' and 'ie' sounds in the video are taught in Year One. In Reception, we teach the digraph 'ow' and the trigraph 'igh' instead. We also teach 'ur' alongside the 'er' sound).
