How do the phonics lesson plans work?

Free online phonics games for kids interactive phonics games EYFS KS1


Each week you will find five interactive and multi-sensory lesson plans   with a hands-on multi-sensory approach, specifically designed to target every aspect of phonics and covering all the major grapheme-phoneme correspondences. From quick and easy group games to reading and writing sentences that include alternative graphemes in phase 5, we have worked hard to ensure that children will have fun, stay engaged and make rapid progress, with the added option of regular outdoor sessions.

We recommend that the following timings are used when teaching the lessons, though this will of course vary from lesson to lesson and from phase to phase:

  • Revisit and review: 5 minutes
  • Teach: 5 minutes
  • Practice: 10 minutes
  • Apply: 10 minutes

The games on here are brilliant! The children loved playing them this morning and it really engaged them in their phonics practice (without knowing them were!)

Time for Phonics is my go-to for phonics games! I adore the interactive games, they get the children so excited for phonics lessons. The planning and resources are fantastic - they are made by teachers for teachers and they save me so much time. My absolute favourite phonics website!

My daughter loved playing the games! Not just because of the unicorns, I think the bright graphics are really appealing. I liked the fact that it was easy to filter by phase  and select groups of letters for her to practice. I had to promise to let her play again later.
