Kingsway Primary School

Set One Phonemes (sounds)

At Kingsway we are using virtual classrooms to help you support you child learning their initial sounds. You can watch the videos together to embed learning undertaken in school or as part of home-learning during any absence from school. Click on the links below to access the videos.

The writing rhyme for each phoneme (sound) is also included so that you can support children with letter formation.

Please speak with your child's keyworker or teacher if you require any support using these links or would like to discuss how you can best support your child with learning to read.

You can find out more about how children learn to read at Kingsway from our curriculum pages. You can also access additional phonic resources from our "Phonic Resources" webpage. This page will be updated with new links added weekly.

Happy learning everyone!
