Useful websites to use at home

Here are some websites based on the letters and sounds.

The Jolly Phonics songs that help teach letter recognition and the sound the letters make.

This video has all the sounds spoken clearly twice and then used in a word.

This link shows the correct letter formation we use in school.


h,i,l, m and n have kicks at the end.

f - we write f like this.

Start just under the top line, go back over the hump, straight down under the line a little bit, kick it back and cross it near the top.

k - we write k like this.

Start at the top, go straight down to the line, back up to the middle, give him a belly, a leg and a kick.

Good websites for phonics games:
