What is Phase 3?
In Phase 3, children build on the letter-sound correspondences learned previously in Phase 2. They continue to learn remaining single sounds and progress to consonant digraphs (sounds made up of two letters together such as ‘ch’ or ‘ll’) and long vowel sounds (such as ‘igh’ or ‘ai’). They will also be introduced to trigraphs (sounds made up of three letters together such as 'air' or 'ure').
