Mrs Emslie and Mrs Houghton’s group:

Let’s begin by recapping your phase 3 sounds. Use Flashcards Speed Trials (phonicsplay.co.uk) or go through your sound mat and tick off all the sounds you get correct.  Don’t forget the phase 5 sounds we have learnt so far too ay, ou, ie, ea oy, ir, ue, aw, ph, wh, ew, oe, au, a-e and e-e.  Write down the score you get and see if you can beat it tomorrow!

Re-cap your high frequency and tricky words using the tricky word trucks.

Today we are going to learn another split digraph - o-e (phone home).  We have also learnt oe (wiggle your toes) and oa (goat in a boat).

Because you are all amazing at your Phase 5 sounds, we are going to be moving onto alternative pronunciations. Today, we are learning to explore the alternative pronunciation of the i grapheme. Watch this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CxhtOqSXRg

In Phonics, today, we are going to be learning about the ‘qu’ grapheme. Make a list of all the ‘qu’ words you know! How many can you name? Watch Geraldine the Giraffe and see if you got more words than her! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRGx54lNHoM

 

I would like you to have a go at reading the ‘qu’ words on your roll and read mat. Roll the dice and say the word that matches the number. Have a go on your own or see if you can beat a family member. Don’t have a printer? Look at the roll and read mat on your screen.
