Phase 5

In this phase children are introduced to new graphemes for reading.

They will also be looking at alternative graphemes that make the same sound that they will have already learnt.  For example, in phase 3 children learned the 'ai' sound as in 'rain.' In this phase, children will learn that a phoneme can be represented by different graphemes e.g. 'ai' as in 'rain' and 'ay' as in 'play' or 'a-e' as in 'make.'

 

 

Here are the graphemes for this phase. Underneath, you can download flashcards for each to practise reading with your child.
