Phase 5 Phonics Videos

Phase 5 Phonics Recap Page

Hi everyone! Here on this page you will find a video for all the sounds which we call 'Phase 5'. In Phase 5 children are introduced to new graphemes for reading. Some of these graphemes represent phonemes (sounds) that they have already learnt a grapheme for. For example, in Phase 3 children were taught 'ai' as the grapheme for the phoneme /a/ (as in rain). In Phase 5, children are taught that the phoneme /a/ can also be represented by the graphemes 'ay' (as in play) or 'a-e' (as in make). This variation needs to be taught as it is common in our language system.

ou (proud)

ie (tie)

ea (treat)

oy (boy)

Split Digraphs

Digraphs are collections of two letters that make one sound. Examples include; rain, book and seed. A split digraph also contains two letters (a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e and u-e) but they are split between a consonant, for example; make, bike and pure.

a-e (make)

e-e (even)

i-e (prize)

o-e (woke)

u-e (cute)
