Phase 2: Graphemes (20)
Phase 3: Graphemes, blends, digraphs and trigraph sounds (27)

The sound mats have been designed by teachers as a resource to enhance reading skills. Children can also use the sound board as a tool to support writing.

Great support for early phonics teaching!

This is a great app for supporting the phonic learning in my class. The game is an enjoyable way for the children to practise reading and recognising sounds and we use the sound mat to support writing activities. Zat phonics sound mat is easy to use and I will definitely be recommending it to other teachers and parents.

Great for learning phonics sounds.

This is a great app for parents and children to use at home. Using the game children can test their understanding of different sets of sounds. Phase 4 sounds are a tricky challenge for year 1 children. A good phonics educational app!

Don’t waste your time - no sound

The app doesn’t play any sound on my phone so I couldn’t use it. It also doesn’t show up on my settings - so I couldn’t even check if sounds had been turned off within the setting platform. All other apps are functioning fine on my phone and play sounds so it’s not a technical issue with my phone specifically. I paid 99p and received nothing.
