Yellow 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.

Wednesday 13th January

Today’s phonics focus is to revise the digraphs oo, ar, or, ur ( A digraph is 2 letters that say one when they are together).

1. Can you impress your adults and show off your thrash rap skills? You could even ask them to test out your silent action skills. If your adult points to a sound – show them the action!

2. Now let’s practise digraphs that we have already learnt, but need to jog our memories after the Christmas break. Show your adult the action for oo, ar, or, ur. Now watch the video to jog those memories

3. Next have a go at the worksheet to practise reading and spelling today’s digraphs – oo, ar, or, ur.

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.
