Leighton Primary School

Week 8

wb 15.6.2020 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 sounds (digraphs – two letters making one sound and Trigraphs - three letters making one sound) following feedback from the learning group in school. To be secure in their learning at Phase 3 the children need to be able to read these sounds in isolation and notice them in words when reading. Importantly the children also need to be able to use these Phase Three sounds in their writing making plausible attempts at words which may or may not be standard English spellings at this stage which is ok. eg. out would be spelt owt at this stage if not learnt as a tricky word in Phase 4   

 

💫Review:

*Practice recognising letters of the alphabet including Capital letters using the alphabet song:

I hope you find these useful, please like 👍 this observation on Tapestry so I can see you have seen it and add a comment if you would like me to provide any further feedback. I would love to see the children's work so please add an observation to tapestry 😊.

You may also find free resources to view and print on twinkl.co.uk to support learning by typing in the search bar the sound or Phonics Phase eg. Phase 3 phonics. The sorting activities, board games and tricky word games are all good.

Good luck and I will add a tricky word observation on Thursday ready for Friday 🤗 Mrs M Wells.
