The Teach Hub Letters and Sounds Phonics and Spelling Teaching Desk Charts PLUS Planning outline EY-Y2


Phonic and Spelling desk charts for YR – Y6 and planning outline for EY -KS1


Support KS1 and KS2 Spellings using phonics

Six progressive and cumulative phonic and spelling charts (Charts 1 to 6) for each phase linked to Letters and Sounds. Phonic Phases 2 to 6 and through KS2 up to Year 6 are used.  Each chart shows the graphemes that need to be taught in each phase linked to Year groups and the linked National Curriculum spelling requirements.

This pack includes the planning outline for teaching spellings and phonics in Key Stage One linking directly to the statutory National Curriculum Spellings document and the Year One Phonics Screening Check requirements (see below).  The planning and charts link to many decodable books including Rising Stars and Collins Big Cats Phonics.

Chart 1 – Phase 2 Reception

Chart 2 – Phase 2, 3 and 4  (Split into Chart 2a, 2b and 2c) Reception

Chart 3 – Reading and Spelling Charts -Phase 2, 3, 4 and 5 (Year 1) linked spelling patterns at Y1

Chart 4 – Reading and Spelling Charts – Phase 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, plus NC linked spelling patterns at Y2

Chart 5 – Phase 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, plus NC linked spelling patterns at Y2, Y3 and Y4

Chart 6 – Phase 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, plus NC linked spelling patterns at Y2, Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6

With many of the more complex alternative graphemes in the spelling requirements in Lower and Upper Key Stage Two, it is important to show how these link in with the Phonic Phases taught in Key Stage One.  Each chart is printable on a Word document for children to use at their desks when writing independently.

Additional graphemes have been added to the Upper Key Stage Two chart to accommodate the silent letters and range of spelling patterns linked to phonics at this level.
