This week, we will be continuing to recap all of the phase 3 sounds.   Each day please use the link below to flash the sounds at the children.

 

Please use the link below to practise reading the phase 3 words. Can you help phonics frog make it home? Tap the screen or click the mouse to jump across the road without getting hit by traffic. Cross the river by jumping onto lily pads, alligators and floating logs. Alligator tails are safe, but not their mouths.

Read the writing on the side of the logs. Be careful. If the word on the log is real the log is safe, but if the word is not real you will fall into the river.

If you notice your child is finding reading or spelling any of the sounds difficult, please encourage them to practise them using the games on PhonicsPlay or Twinkl.

Week commencing 22nd June

This week as some of the children return to school we are recapping ALL the sounds that the children have learned so far this year, right from the very beginning.

We will use flash cards and CVC words to check their recall and recognition.

Please use the below powerpoints clips below to revisit the sounds.

Week commencing 15th June

This week we are asking you to look at 'High frequency' words. These are words that the children have to read and write all of the time. They should become really familiar with them and not need to sound them out after a few attempts.

We have included some short songs and powerpoints that are useful in the teaching of these words. 

High frequency word flashcards

Here are a few games and activities that you could play to encourage quick recall of High frequency words in a fun way!

 

1. Play corners in the house or garden. Choose 4 High frequency words. Write them on paper or card and stick them up in different places so that the children can see them. Call out a word. The children then run to that word. Repeat a few times. Try adding or changing some of the words to expand their knowledge and recall.

 

2. Play relay races collecting a High frequency word (written on paper/card) each time. Read it out before another one can be collected. How many can they read in 1 minute?

 

3. Play hide and seek with High frequency words hidden around the house or garden. When the children find them they have to read the word before they can attempt to find another one.

 

The same set of words can be used to play all 3 games. You could even include the children in the initial writing process so that they take more ownership of the games.

 

Have fun with High frequency word games this week.

 

 

Week commencing 8th June

This week we would like the children to think about 'Tricky' words, These are words that they use regularly that cannot be sounded out using their phonetic skills, they simply have to learn them by sight. 

Watch the following clips which the children are familiar with as we have sang along to them in school before.

Tricky word magic hat game

Tricky word car game

REMEMBER

There are lots of phase 3 games on phonics play too.

Once you have spent a couple of days going over these tricky words, see how many you can write in a list. Try it the following day and see if you can think of more. Write them in chalk on the floor outside or use a wet paintbrush and water to write them on the wall or floor outside. Roll them out using play dough or use Lego bricks to make a 'Tricky' word. Find sticks and make the letters of a tricky word or use a stick to write in sand or mud. There are lots of ways to make 'tricky' words without just writing them down. We look forward to seeing all your creative ideas!

The majority of our children are working within phase 3.  We recommend using the flashcards daily to increase the children's recall of the sounds.  At this point in the year the children may not know all of the sounds so you can then play games from the site with the children to practise any sounds the children do not know.
