Mrs Harvey's Phonics Group

You have done such a great job with the different trigraphs so far this week. Today we are learning the last digraph. Keep up the good work! Remember any questions, problems or concerns, don't hesitate to send me a message on Dojo. Mrs.Howarth

Thursday 14th January

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.

1. Let’s start with looking at capital letters. Can you find the capital letter? Click on the link below.

2. Next watch the video to find out about the ‘er’ digraph.

3. Finally complete the ‘er’ worksheet. Remember to send it to Mrs.Howarth on Dojo
 I am trialling a new discovery today – completing as an online worksheet. There is the option to download. Just above the worksheet there are some blue links. One says download as PDF. If completed live, the worksheet will mark the top 2 sections for you. Remember to send it to Mrs.Howarth on Dojo I would really appreciate any feedback as to whether you prefer the downloadable version, or being able to complete online. Thanks

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.
