Singing Phonics 3 is the third in the successful Singing Phonics song collection designed to support phonics teaching and enrich young children's experience of language in a fun and interactive way. It follows Singing Phonics and Singing Phonics 2, and is ideal for use with phases 4, 5 and 6 of the 'Letters and Sounds' phonics programme, published by the Primary National Strategy. It is a highly useful addition to any phonics scheme. Each song or chant is accompanied by a set of activities (including photocopiable resources) and ideas for further development. The pack includes a CD with sample performances. Many songs have familiar tunes, making Singing Phonics 3 a highly user-friendly resource with no music reading required.
