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).
Chart 1 – Phase 2
Chart 2 – Phase 2, 3 and 4
Chart 3 – Phase 2, 3, 4 and 5 (Year 1) linked spelling patterns at Y1
Chart 4 – 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.
Phonics outline planning using Letters and Sounds, National Curriculum and the Year One Phonic Screening Check criteria for Early Years, Year One and Year Two.

Any spelling patterns linking to words that are useful to spell are included in the appropriate place.
Rarer GPCs that are more accessible to teaching in KS2 have been highlighted and can be addressed incidentally or taught depending on your choice.
