Please note - The year group email address will only be managed during the school day, during term time. Due to the teachers working in school, it may take longer than usual to receive a response.

Any other queries should be sent to the school office email address.

Year 2 Phonics

Sounds are taught in phases (groups) and all children at school are taught in different groups dependent on the sounds they are confident with. Most of the children in Year 2 will be ready to recap the sounds of phase 5 in their phonics sessions or move straight to phase 6 (if your child is finding these sounds challenging, please look on the phonics advice on the Year 1 page to find other sounds they can learn).

Each day, show them one sound from that phase using Mr Thorne does Phonics:

After they have watched the video, children can then practice recognising and using the games on 'Phonics Play':

Once they have done this, they can start on the sounds from phase 6...
