Learning to read with phonics

If you live in England, your child will learn to read using phonics. Their school is very likely to use either the Letters and Sounds phonics framework or the Read Write Inc. programme. Check with your school if you’re not sure which one they use.

Using Letters and Sounds?

If your child is using Letters and Sounds, you can find this list of eBooks by Letters and Sounds Phases useful. Bear in mind the following:

  • If you don’t know your child’s Phase, you can check with your school. As a guide, most Reception children will be on Phases 1–4 and most Year 1 children will be on Phases 4–5. Beyond Phase 5, your child will be able to decode most books.
  • In Letters and Sounds, there are ‘sets’ within the Phases – so your child might not know all the sounds in every book within their Phase.
  • Some series contain occasional ‘tricky words’ that your child can’t decode using phonics. Use the inside front cover notes to teach your child these words before they start the book.
  • Find out more about Letters and Sounds >
Using Read Write Inc. Phonics?

If your child is being taught to read using the Read Write Inc. programme, you can find books suitable for them by clicking on the ‘Levels’ menu below and using the 'Read Write Inc.' filter to select the right level.
