Phonics week commencing 01/06/20
We will now be revisiting sounds and words from phase 3 and phase 4 of phonics. This is because phase 5 will be revisited in Year 1, and by the end of Foundation Stage children should begin to feel confident in their knowledge of phase 3 & 4. Hopefully your child will be confident with most of these sounds and words, but use this last half term to help your child in writing as well as reading these words. Included in the new Powerpoint are a list of tricky words (words that can't be sounded out) for these phases.
The PowerPoint attached is in a format that the children are used to. Ask your child to stretch out the words e.g. c- oi-n and then squash them - 'coin' (they will show you how it's done!). It might be an idea to ask them to play teacher, so you can see how to do it! There are five lessons included in the PowerPoint.
When you have done, ask your child to have a go at writing the words and sentences suggested . You might need to write them first for them to copy, then let them have a go at writing the sentences on their own. Pay particular attention to pencil grip, if there are certain letters needing more attention , it might be an idea to do some letter formation (handwriting) practise also.
Please also use the links below for useful resources and interactive learning.
