Miss Reynolds' Phonics Group

Good Morning!

Phonics each day will be set by Mrs.Howarth. If you have any problems, concerns or questions don't hesitate to contact me via Dojo. I will also mark your child's phonics work and provide their feedback.

Tuesday 11th January

Today’s phonics focus sound is alternative pronunciation for the letter ‘c’. Alternative pronunciation means that a letter can say more than 1 sound when we read it. Todays letter is ‘c’. It can say 2 different sounds - c, or s depending upon the word it is in.

1. Let’s start with a bit of singing this morning. Here is the tricky word song.Remember to look at the word as it comes up, and to try to remember the spelling as a camera word.

2. Next watch the video to find out more about todays sound. Alternative pronunciation of c

3. Finally have a go at the alternative pronunciation c worksheet. Remember to send it to Mrs.Howarth on Dojo.

Section 1 – Next to each word write which sound ‘c’ says, write either c or s?

Section 2 – Read the sentence. I have circled letters which can have alternative pronunciation. What sound does the letter say? Write it in the circle.

Section 3 – Just like the sentence above, read the sentence, but this time you put a circle around any letters which can have alternative pronunciation (can say a different sound). Draw an arrow and a bubble. In your bubble write the sound the letter can say.

Section 4 – Write a caption (a sentence that explains the picture) for the picture. It must have at least one word with our alternative pronunciation ‘c’.

There is no expectation to print off any of the sheets. You can print, write onto the sheet on your device, write onto a piece of paper, or in a work book and send a picture, or simply spell the words/sentences onto Dojo and send. Do whichever works best for you.


Phonics is a crucial skill for your child. Please ensure that these activities are completed independently, although they may help to understand what to do, they must read and write the sounds by themselves in order to practise these crucial skills. At this stage we do not expect that words are spelled correctly, but are spelled phonetically.
