wb 4.5.2020 Hello Everyone,
Last week the Government released Phonics sessions, these are ok for general reviews of learning and offer 20 minute videos for your child to watch, they will need a pen and paper towards the end of the session. The link for the first one is here for you:
However, in our group this week we are going to focus on recapping the Phase three digraphs (two letters making one sound) ur, ow and oi as we would have done in class. At the end of the week we are also going to review the Phase 4 tricky words learnt and learn two more.
*Each day use one of the videos on Tapestry to practice reading the phonemes, words and sentence.
*Listen to the Jolly Phonics songs for phase three, The j sound is the beginning of Phase 3 and starts at 5 min 27 seconds, so you could start from here. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2wpdvv
*Practice reading and writing the Phase 3 and 4 tricky words how many can you write in a minute? (see attachments below).

😃 I hope you have had a good week and enjoyed reviewing and learning the digraphs ur, ow and oi.
To start our session, I would like you to practice writing the words: burn, crown and boing.
Now let’s review the tricky words by playing Tricky word trucks on Phonicsplay - where you can choose your own selection of tricky words or review all of Phase 3 and 4:
👍Challenge yourself can you write any of these the words, without looking, three times?
Practice: Can you write out the Phase 3 and 4 tricky words and identify which bit is tricky. For instance in said the a and the i is more of an ‘e’, the middle sound is the tricky bit.
To help you with this you can explore the ‘Train your brain’ link on Phonicsplay. Start with Phase 3 but if this is too easy then try Phase 4. You can watch the introduction, demonstration or just go straight to the choose words section.
Finally you can apply your knowledge by:
🌞reading the tricky word sentences and making your own cotton bud sentences by dotting out the caption for your child to trace with a cotton bud and paint (see attached photo).
🌞 Reading the tricky words in the spotter story (attached below)
🌞 Playing the tricky word 'Read and Roll' game. (attached below) Can you get to the other side of the board in a straight line or diagonally? Or four words in a row?
Have fun, Good luck and please like this observation on Tapestry as acknowledgement that you have received it.
