‘Roots to grow; wings to fly’

Thank you to those parents who came to our Phonics Evening last week. We hope that you found it useful. 

Here is the link to the phonics play website they we use in school: https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk

This is great for phonics games, applying the sounds that we are learning in school and for reading those tricky words that can't be sounded out. We are currently working on sounds within phase 3 but please do also recap phase 2 sounds so that they are embedded and fluent both in reading AND writing. 

There are also some nice activities on http://www.twinkl.co.uk

Sounds to practise at home from the last few weeks of phonics:

Mrs Williams' group:

j, v, w, x, y, z, zz (fizz), qu (quick/ quit), sh (shop/ wish), ch (chip/ much), th (that/ with), ng (ring/ song)

Tricky words: and, I, the, to

Miss Beaumont's group: ai (rain/ train), ee (tree/ queen), igh (high, flight), oa (goat, throat), oo (zoo/ moon), oo (book/ shook), ar (card/ start), or (fork/ sort), ur/er (burger)

Tricky words: you, he, she, me, we, be, my, was, so, no, go

These will be in your phonics packs to practise and reinforce at home both through reading and writing. Challenge your child by getting them to write a silly sentence using a sound and some tricky words e.g. can the king sing? My goat was on a boat. Don't forget finger spaces between the words! 

Any questions do come and speak to us.
