Phonic Screening

The following websites also have some great games to practise phonic skills for reading  Some free phonics games including real and alien words  The Literacy section has lots of phonic games  Examples of words for the different phases of phonic knowledge

Ideas for games:

  • Make their own alien words using the sounds they have covered.
  • Snap using flash cards or words they have thought of.
  • Post-its hidden around the room or garden, they run to find the word.
  •  How many words can you think of with a particular sound.
  •  Flash cards on the floor the children say them before jumping over them.
  •  Splat, write words on a piece of paper, children have to splat the word      (with their hand or fly swat) when you say it.

More reading and phonics links can be found on the Year 1 Literacy tab!
