Daily Phonics Time

 

This week (from Monday 25th May) there will be no new videos to watch as it is half-term. You can use this week to start watching from the beginning if you've not started watching, you can spend time catching up if you've missed any or if you've watched them all you can enjoy a break or re-watch them for a recap!

 

Click the daily link below to take you to the video on YouTube.

In the videos, we will learn the new sounds, then use them to practise reading and writing new words and sentences.

Remember to use your 'lead-ins' and 'hook outs' to start and finish each letter you write! Look at the photo of our letters below to remind yourself how each letter looks.

The first week block is a recap of sounds we learnt in school.

The first week of new sounds is the week beginning 4th May. Make sure you start with this one to follow the teaching in the correct order.

On this page you will find some resources that you can print and use to support your child in practising the phonics we have covered so far this year in class. We will also add some ideas for phonics games that you can play with your child.

Below you will find a set of Phase 2 sound flashcards and a set of the Phase 3 sounds learnt so far that you can print out. If you are not able to print them out, then you can make your own by writing the sounds onto small pieces of card or paper. If you have magnetic letters then these will work just as well.

We will also provide some links to websites that you can use and as we discover more sites or apps we will add these links too.

 

Keep phonics practice practical and have short sessions each day.

 

Start each session with some simple sound recognition.

  • You can show the flashcards and ask your child to tell you the sound.
  • You can say the sound and ask your child to find the correct letter or digraph.
  • You could write the sounds with chalk on the floor outside and ask your child to make the sound as they jump on the letter.
  • Play a game on a website or an app.

 

Spend some time making words for your child to read and get them writing words too. Make sure you stick to words that they can attempt by only using the sounds they have learnt, this way the children will feel like they are being successful and that should make it less of a battle for you both!

 

**Please now find a list of words suitable for using to practise the Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds.**

The words are set out in the same order that we learnt the sounds, so the words near the start are the easiest as these contain the sounds we learnt first and therefore have practised the most. You can make these words for your child to read or ask them to write the words.
