Phase 2: Week 5 – Learning to Read H,B,F,FF,L,LL,SS

Sharing is caring!

Week 5 has arrived already! Can you believe we have already reached the end of our phase 2 phonic journey? Next week will be recapping the sounds to help consolidate this phase in various ways before moving on to phase 3. But first, let’s look at what this week has in store for you…

week 5 phase 2 phonics activities to support learning to read-2

Which letters and sounds are we learning this week?

We have a few graphemes (letters) to get through this week.

Please welcome… H, B, F, FF, L, LL and finally SS.

Your child will need to learn the letter names like you say them when saying the alphabet (A, B,┬áC) as well as the letter sounds. This is the same for the digraphs (2 letter sounds) for example ‘S and S’ make the ‘ss’ sound.

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 ‘had’, ‘him’, ‘is’, ‘but’, ‘big’, ‘back’, ‘of’, ‘if’ and ‘off’. Our tricky words (not phonetic words) are ‘no’, ‘go’ and ‘I’.

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

What can we do with this week’s sounds?

Build the word with plasticine

sequin letters for sensory writing and letter recognition

Sensory alphabet letters with sequins

What words can I create?

Don’t forget to mix this week’s letters with those letters from previous weeks. That way, you can keep practising them and you can create a wider range of words. For ideas on the words you can create with the letters we’ve learned so far, please look at our word lists.
