Also at the beginning of every session send your child around the house to find 5 objects! For example, one from the kitchen, one from the bathroom, one from their bedroom etc to make it easier.

Can they tell you the name of the object and then the beginning sound?

e.g. s for soap, L for lego, c for cup, b for ball.

Tricky words

In this session we are going to practice our tricky words . These are the words we have to learnt by sight as they cannot be phonically blended. Tricky words session Listen and join in with the tricky word song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0  First of all play a game to help recognise these words quickly. I, no, go , to , the , into The children should know these words really well by now . At home you should have a copy of our tricky troll word mat sent home in your home learning packs . Say the word and help your child find it written down on a piece of paper or on their tricky troll word sheet. Practise reading the tricky words by Watching this video clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaqI5-0d-MM 

Now have a go at writing the tricky words.
Play quick write!
You say the word, the children write it.
I, go, to, the, no, into

Now have a go at Writing a sentence.
Write this sentence on a piece of paper and read it together.
“I go into the den.”
Revise what we need for a sentence Capital letter, full stop, finger spaces and using our phonics skills.
Then hide the sentence . Explain to your child they are now going to have a go at writing it by themselves. Repeat the sentence out loud several times, encourage your child to join in so they get into the habit and it will help them remember the sentence.
Using a piece of paper get your child to write the sentence. If they are struggling to remember give them one word at a time. Don’t prompt finger spaces. (see if they can do it by themselves and give them lots of praise for having a go )

Please look at the tricky words cards and play lots of games or hide them around the house or garden . Also use the tricky word booklet to practice and apply what you have learnt.
Well done everyone . Please like this observation on Tapestry so I know you have seen it.

Thank you for your continued support.
