If you would like a better understanding of how to support your children with their reading and writing, then you can take a free course in the Sounds-Write Phonics Program that we use in school.

Here are some super ideas for phonics games to do at home:


You can share books from your own bookshelves. Parents can read the book and encourage children to read as much of the text as they can, even if it is just the odd word or sentence.

Encourage the children to write a book review and draw pictures of their favourite characters.

Phonics and spelling

Go back over your child's spellings and check they can still spell them.

Go back over and read their keywords together to consolidate them.


For Reception children it can be a couple of simple sentences.

We are about to learn about writing instructions, so why not play a game or make something. Write a set of instructions to tell others how to do it.

Other things you could do

English games: Tell a T-rex, Poop Deck Pirates, Dinosaur Eggs High-Frequency Words, Forest phonics

These all practice reading words using phonics. Pick from sounds that your child has in their sound packets, moving on to new sounds if needed.
