Today’s phonics focus sound is an easier digraph ‘er’. For today’s action, hold one hand flat and with your other hand pretend you have a hammer. Bang your hammer hand against your flat hand. Usually ‘er’ goes at the end of a word and you might also notice that the letter before the ‘er’ sound is usually doubled.
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.
