Are you struggling to make all the resources to support Letters and Sounds? Then it’s time to learn some sneaky shortcuts

From evaluations following our action research on phonics teaching, teachers have been astonished at the rate of progress their children made in early reading and writing. In addition, they have universally talked about the confidence their children have gained. It seems once grapheme/phoneme correspondence is introduced (often quite early in Reception), the daily 20-minute phonics session is having a real impact.

However, teachers regularly ask our Phonics Lead Teachers how to fit the four-part session (‘Revisit and review, teach, practise and apply’), into 20 minutes of high-quality learning and teaching. They are also keen to develop other games and activities to support their teaching.

Our two PLTs have wide experience in planning exciting, but easily prepared resources for their children to interact with. Here, they reveal some of their favourite resources and activities.
