Phonics/ Sound boxes

Sounds learned so far through phonics/sound boxes:

Sound boxes

Each child will be given a sound box to practise learning phonic sounds and words which have the sounds in. They will be doing this in school and we hope that the children will eventually be able to take them home. They will also be practising the letter formation for each sound. Please remember that we have a cursive writing policy at our school.


The table showing all pink sounds, yellow words and blue words can be found on the sound box page link.


High Frequency Words

We will be beginning to look at and practise reading the Reception high frequency words in band 1, band 2 and

band 3. Please see the High Frequency word page for more information.


Thank you for all your continued support smiley
