Know Worksheets:

These are intended to be adult-led. Say a sound and children identify the correct letter(s) by circling/colouring. As an extension, children give a word which uses the target sound.
See an example

Read Worksheets:

To differentiate your lesson, there are ‘supported’ and ‘independent’ worksheets. Many schools use the supported worksheets when the class is blending with new sounds and the independent worksheets once they are confident. The supported worksheets also include sound ‘buttons’ (a single-letter sound indicated by a dot and a line to indicate a digraph/trigraph) to support children in identifying the grouping of letters.
See an example: supported and independent

Spell Worksheets:

The supported worksheet includes boxes to show how many sounds are in the word. The independent worksheets allow children to go it alone. Note, the answers are included so you don’t get stuck guiding the children!
See an example: supported and independent

Camera/Tricky Read:

Every child loves a word search! Hunt for the hidden camera/tricky words, they can be horizontal or vertical. As an extension, children can find the extra word or write a sentence using the target words.
See an example

Camera/Tricky Spell:

Follow the three-step process to spell these tricky words: spell the decodable part of the word, identify the tricky part and then spell the whole word.
See an example

Sentence Reading:

The supported sheet asks children to read a caption/sentence and decide if the picture matches. The independent sheet has children identifying the picture from an array. The camera/tricky words are bolded to indicate that these words are trickier.
