Phase 2: Week 1- Learning to Read SATP

Sharing is caring!

Schools follow varying phonic programmes, but a very popular one is the sequence as set out in Letters and Sounds. If your child is learning using Read Write Inc or Jolly Phonics, you can still use our activities and resources to support their learning, the order your child learns them might vary slightly. So here we start helping you and your child Learn to Read with Phonics.

Week 1 of learning phonics with Letters and Sound the letters S A T and P. Hands-on Activities to support your child as they learn to read

Which letters and sounds are we learning this week?

Our 4 letters for this week are S, A, T, P.

Your child will need to learn the letter names like you say them when saying the alphabet (A, B, C) as well as the letter sounds.

They will likely be presented with both the UPPERCASE (capitals) and lowercase (not capitals). When writing, they may focus on the lowercase formation, to begin with.

Which high frequency words are we learning this week?

Our common words are ‘as’ and ‘a’.

Take a look at our High Frequency Word activities for some ideas.

What can we do with this week’s sounds?

Build the word a simple and easy activity with your child as they learn the first basic words to read, write and spell.

Make your own sensory letters.
