Phase 3

By the time they reach Phase 3, children will already be able to blend and segment words containing the 19 letters taught in Phase 2.

 

Over the twelve weeks which Phase 3 is expected to last, twenty-five new graphemes are introduced (one at a time).

 

Set 6: j, v, w, x

 

Set 7: y, z, zz, qu

 

Consonant digraphs: ch, sh, th, ng

 

Vowel digraphs: ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er

 

During Phase 3, children will also learn the letter names using an alphabet song, although they will continue to use the sounds when decoding words.
