Do your pupils need the support of a word mat to help identify the sounds in words?
If so, this phase 2 sound mat might be just what you need. It contains the phonemes taught in phase 2 from Letters and Sounds with illustrations to remind them of the sound the letters represent.
The sound mat can be used by pupils to support segmenting when writing words. It could also be used for quick recall practice for the phonemes that the pupils have been taught, to check that they can respond speedily with the correct sounds to graphemes.
