Jolly Phonics / Letters & Sounds Lesson Plans (EYFS) | Free Early Years & Primary Teaching Resources (EYFS & KS1)

Phonics / Letters & Sounds

This section contains a collection of early years (EYFS)/ key stage 1 (KS1) lesson plans, activities and ideas to assist with the teaching of phonics and the DfES Letters and Sounds programme. It now includes a scheme of work / planning guidance for each phase of the letters and sounds programme as well as an assessment template. You may also like to look at our extensive literacy section, where we have a comprehensive selection of Phase 1-6 resources.

We are looking to make this section as comprehensive as possible and as such if you have any letters and sounds planning documents that you would like to share we’d love to hear from you. We are happy to pay for these documents.

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!
