wb 22.6.2020 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
*Practice recognising all Phase 3 sounds using Flashcards Speed Trial https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/3/flashcards-speed-trials
*Practice recognising the Phase 3 sounds using Grab a Giggling Grapheme https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/3/grab-a-giggling-grapheme

Tricky word session:
We have now spent time learning all the tricky words in Phase 3 and 4 so we will practise reading and writing them from now on. Children need to be able to read them straight away and write them down from memory.
The words we have covered are: he she we me be my was you they her all are said do so like have were there
when what out some come little one
👍Challenge Can you write any of these the words, without looking, three times?
🌞 Play the Simply Phonics tricky words video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ek8TVoLdJWY
Challenge yourself to write sentences e.g. Mrs Wells said good job you were fab and there is a sticker! 🌈
Focus on learning a couple of unfamiliar words with your child first. Write the words on pieces of paper and hide them around the garden or room for your child to find. Can they read them when they are found? How many of each word have you found? You might find these words in your storybooks and be a Tricky word Detective - Can you keep a list of all of the words you have found?
Good luck. Mrs M. Wells
