Today’s phonics focus sound is alternative pronunciation for the letter ‘u’. Alternative pronunciation means that a letter can say more than 1 sound when we read it. Todays letter is ‘u’. Each vowel says 2 sounds. It can say its name and it can say it’s sound. That means that ‘u’ can say ‘u’ or ‘yoo’.
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.
