Phonics Phase 5 Alternative Pronunciations and Spellings Video in the Phonics Factory

Teacher Specific Information

This Phonics Phase 5 Alternative Pronunciations and Spellings Video will introduce children to the fact that sometimes the same grapheme can make different sounds and different graphemes can make the same sound. There are a few examples covered in the video, but to develop a further understanding, children can play our fun Phonics Phase 5 Alternative Pronunciations Games and Phonics Phase 5 Alternative Spellings Games after.

If you would like to access additional resources which link to this game, you can purchase a subscription for only £5.31 per month on our sister site, Classroom Secrets.

Development Matters

Children in Reception
(L-7) Read individual letters by saying the sounds for them.
(L-9) Read some letter groups that each represent one sound and say sounds for them.
(L-10) Read a few common exception words matched to the school’s phonic programme.

Early Learning Goal
(WR-ELG) – Say a sound for each letter in the alphabet and at least 10 digraphs; – Read words consistent with their phonic knowledge by sound-blending; – Read aloud simple sentences and books that are consistent with their phonic knowledge, including some common exception words.

National Curriculum

Year 1
Apply phonic knowledge and skills as the route to decode words.
Read accurately by blending sounds in unfamiliar words containing GPCs that have been taught.
