Leighton Primary School

Week 4

wb 11.5.2020 Hello Everyone,

🌞Happy Tuesday!

The Government continue to offer Phonics sessions online, 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. Click the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siVkXoEQDNc

In our group this week we are going to focus on recapping the Phase three digraph (two letters making one sound) er, as an alternative to the ur we learnt last week and the trigraphs (three letters making one sound) ear in beard and air in hair.

At the end of the week we are also going to review the Phase 4 tricky words learnt and learn two more.

 

💫Review:

*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 all of the Phase 3 sounds using https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/member-only/Flashcards.html

 

Lesson 1

💫Teach: Today's focus is 'er' sound in rubber or mixer.

Practice writing this digraph in the air/on your hand/in shaving foam or a thin layer of sugar, sand or flour in a tray, on a whiteboard or paper. I have included a photo of a slide with the action and formation so your child can see how it sits on the line. Say the formation rhymes as you write them in lowercase:

e -  lift off the top and scoop out the egg.

r - down the robots back and curl over his arm.

💫Practice: Can you write the words: mixer, fern, rubber and read the er words. Challenge: try together.

💫Apply: Watch Mr Thorne’s Phonics exploring er with Geraldine the Giraffe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaxZN4BZjgc

✨Challenge: Can you now write a silly sentence or question of your own using the er words in Mr Thorne’s Phonics? Eg. The lavender was up the ladder or Was the mermaid in the herbs?

 

Lesson 2

💫Teach: Wednesday's focus is the trigraph ear in beard. Practice writing this in the air/on your hand/in shaving foam or a thin layer of sugar, sand or flour in a tray, on a whiteboard or paper. I have included a photo of a slide so your child can see how it sits on the line. Say the formation rhymes as you write them in lowercase:

e -  lift off the top and scoop out the egg.

a – all around the apple, don’t forget the leaf.

r - down the robots back and curl over his arm.

💫Practice: Can you read the ear words on the video and write ears, fear, earring.

Updated 14.5.2020  😃

I hope you have had a good week and enjoyed reviewing and learning the digraph er and Trigraphs air and ear.

To start our session, I would like you to practice writing the words: burger, hair and beard.

 

Now review the tricky words by listening to the tricky word songs: 🎵

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R087lYrRpgY   (Phase 3)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brBjwnJHvek   (Phase 4 part a)

👍Challenge yourself can you write any of these the words, without looking, three times?

 

Teach: This week we are going to focus on the two words there and  were.

The ‘ere’ bit makes them tricky as they are alternative spellings for the sounds we have covered so far, these will be introduced in Year 1 (Phase 5b) and then will not be on the tricky list anymore.

Ask your grown up to show you for 10 seconds then hide it, Can you write there and were?

– this is called the Look, Cover, Write, Check approach. Alternatively, you could learn them by their letter shapes: there is two taller letters and three smaller ones in there whereas in were is four smaller letters.

 

Practice: Can you write a sentence/question with the tricky words?

eg. Can you hear that noise there?     How old were you last year?

 

Finally you can apply your knowledge by:

🌞 Going on the Phonics play website - Sentences Phase 3

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/member-only/Sentences3.html where you will see some tricky word sentences. Read was, my and then you and they sentences.

Have fun, Good luck and please like this observation on Tapestry as acknowledgement that you have received it.  Mrs M Wells
