Phonics play is a great, interactive resource that the children use at school during their phonics learning. It offers a range of games for the children to engage with to practise their phonics skills. For homework this week, please explore the website encouraging your child to access the games (some favourites include Buried Treasure, Dragon’s Den and Picnic or Pluto). Since returning to school, we have been focusing on revising Phase 3 phonics, so please select this when choosing your game options.

The log ins for spelling shed can be found stapled into the front of your child's reading record. If you have any problems logging on please contact me on the Year 1 email address (

Spelling and Reading
