Downe Manor Primary School

Downe Manor, where everybody has the opportunity to be inspired to reach their full potential through memorable learning experiences


A sound mat is a printed collection of phonemes (sounds) that the children use in phonics which are usually split into 4 out of the 5 taught phases.

Each sound is accompanied by a related image to help your child quickly recognise the sound that the letter makes. It’s mostly used as a way to help children recall the sound made, or help them find the grapheme (written letter) they need for their spelling.
