These Phase 3 Digraph Rhymes help children remember the sound of each digraph by relating it to a familiar picture. The whimsical images hook children’s imagination whilst helping them to recall phonics learning at a later date. We have specifically created the sayings using only words that are phonetically decodable at phase 3 – as we think that makes the most sense!
As you’ll see, we have purposefully not used letters with lead-ins, as per the guidance in the 2021 DfE Reading Framework. As we’ve said, this works really well as a morning activity, or as part of your phonics lessons, or even for home learning.
This file downloads as a zip file, so will work best on a computer rather than a mobile device.
