How to say the sounds

It is most important that children pronounce the sounds clearly. To help you support your child with this, the following links are to film clips that demonstrate the correct way to say the letter sounds.

The first three clips are from Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revisited and cover the first sounds taught in Reception.

The following clip features Tami Reis-Frankfort who is a reading specialist and trainer. She demonstrates how to pronounce all the sounds of the English Phonic Code, when teaching children to read with Synthetic Phonics. There is a pause after each sound for you to repeat the sounds.
