Good Morning!

I will be setting your phonics activities for the week. They will all be located on this page. If you have any questions, concerns or problems please send me a Dojo message. Thanks Mrs.Howarth

Monday 18th January

Today’s phonics focus is to practise segmenting (splitting a word into different sounds) and blending (putting sounds back together to make a word). This is a super important skill that you were starting to get so good at just before Christmas. We need to practise this skill everyday

1. Let’s start with the tricky word song. Remember to look carefully at the spellings and try to put them into your memory. Remember we can’t sound these words out, so we need to remember how to read and spell them, as camera words.

3. Next practise the blending and segmenting.

This is 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. Scroll down to the blue finish button. It will give you an option to ‘email teacher’ you will need this code 81yrmqmo8pc. Or if you prefer, you can take a screenshot or photo and send to me on Dojo. Click on the link below.

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.

Wednesday 20th January

Today’s phonics focus is to learn about 'q' and it's best friend 'u'. It makes the digraph (2 letters that go together to make one sound) 'qu'. The action for 'qu', is to pretend your hand is a duck's beak and make it quack. 

1. Let’s start with a game. Choose phase 2, and any of the focus letters. Your child should sound out and blend the word back together by themselves. Decide if the word is a real word (treasure), or a made up word (trash) and move the word to the correct pirate. Please don’t read the word to your child. Click on the link below.

2. Next watch the video and let’s learn about the sound q and it’s best friend u.

3. Finally have a go at matching words with qu, to their pictures. Click on the link below.

4. Optional activity. Practise handwriting for the qu sound.

Thursday 21st January

Today’s phonics focus is to practise the sound we learned yesterday. 'q' and it's best friend 'u'. It makes the digraph (2 letters that go together to make one sound) 'qu'. The action for 'qu', is to pretend your hand is a duck's beak and make it quack. 

2. Next practise finding the ‘qu’ sound, as well as a few others and popping the bubbles.

Follow the link below.

Click on English games.

Scroll down to ‘Phoneme pop’

Click on the purple button at the bottom (it says set 7: y , z, zz, qu)

3. Next practise reading words with yesterday’s sound ‘qu’. Choose phase 2 and qu. If the word is real put it in the treasure chest. If the word is made up, put it in the bin. Follow the link below.

4. Finally hunt the ‘qu’ sound. Put a circle around it, or highlight it. How many can you find?

Friday 22nd January

Today’s phonics focus is to practise blending and segmenting with the ‘qu’ sound which we have learned and practised over the past few days. It’s all fun and games today – the best way to revise!

1. First let’s practise reading the phase 2 sounds you know. Click on the link below and select phase 2. Your adult will need to check the tick for correct answers, and the cross for incorrect answers. Let me know your score.

2.  Next practise spotting yesterdays ‘qu’ sound.

 

I have discovered a new phonics website and signed everybody up. To log in you need your child’s initials and the password Stephens123. Let me know if you have any problems logging in.  

Click on the link below.

3. After that make words using yesterday’s sound ‘qu’. This is a great game to practise your recognition of the sounds and spelling. Choose the ‘qu’ sound.

4. Finally practise adding sound buttons to words make sure you choose the ‘qu’ sound. Like you saw in the video on Tuesday. This is the same website as above

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.

A note about next week’s phonics….

I will be uploading next week’s phonics activities onto dojo, not on the school website. An activity will appear on your child’s portfolio as a ‘to do’. You will be able to access the links, sheets etc via the ‘to do’.

All of the other subjects will remain on the school web page.
