Playing with Sounds - Videos and Games

On this page we will be posting a range of different videos and links to websites that you can use at home to support your child. Some videos will model how to support them whilst others can be a like a game. Linked websites have games that we sometimes use in school. We hope you find them useful.

Phase 1 phonics ideas #1

Mrs Lamb is being helped by Izzy to listen to words that are sounded out. You can do this yourself with pictures in magazines, or from photos or even during activities in the day to day routine.

“We are going to park and we need to wear our c-oa-t” allowing time for your child to hear c-oa-t and putting it together and say sing coat. “Would you like a drink of m-i-l-k or j-oo-s?” Giving children choices, especially if it is of particular interest to them, is really useful and a lot of the time children don’t realise what you’re doing.

Phase 1 phonics ideas #2

Mrs Lamb is being helped by Izzy again and this time they are listening for the initial phoneme in words - you might say the first sound, or what does it start with?

These pictures have been downloaded from a website but you can use pictures on TV, items at the supermarket or a selection of toys at home. Listen carefully, and encourage children to hear the starting sound. “Which is the odd one out? cow, cup, teddy or comb? Which one doesn’t start with ‘c’?”

S phoneme hunt

In my garden I've hidden 10 's' objects. Try to name them. Can you hear the 's' at the beginning?

T phoneme hunt

Look for the 10 't' objects hidden in my garden. Can you hear the 't' sound at the start of each object?

P phoneme hunt

Look for 10 items hidden in my garden that start with the 'p' phoneme. Can you name them ? Talk with a grownup about what you can see, listen carefully for the 'p' at the start of each word.

'n' phoneme hunt

Can you name the different 'n' objects I found in the classroom this morning. Talk with a grownup about each object, can you hear the 'n' at the start?
