Start each phonics lesson this week reading through the phase 3 tricky words below.

If you prefer you might like to read the words using the Tricky Word Trucks game from phonics play.

Spend a few minutes at the beginning of each lesson going through all the phonemes that you know so far.  Don't forget to practice the ones that you learnt last week; ai, ee and igh.
