This activity helps your child consolidate the links between sounds and letters, and allows your child to start reading and spelling words. Your child will begin by learning just a few sound-letter links (phonics), which can be used to build simple words. As children develop their phonics knowledge, they can begin reading and spelling more complex words.

You are encouraged to watch the video below, to both support your understanding of the activity and to see the activity demonstrated by an adult and child.
