Mrs Lenotti’s group:

I’d like you to 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.

 

This week we are going to have a revision week. So we are going to look at CVCC words and CCVC words, we are also going to look at some dictation and tricky words.

 

Today I’d like you to look at CCVC words, check out this video CCVC Words | Phonics Phase 4 - YouTube

 

Have a look at the worksheet attached.

 

Mrs Hutcheon’s group:

Before we start, let’s practise all of our sounds - https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/flashcards-speed-trials  (Phase 5) Write down the score you get and see if you can beat it tomorrow! If you cannot access phonicsplay, test yourself on the sound mat!

 

We have been looking at the alternative pronunciation of i. If you need to recap yesterday’s learning, then re-watch the video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CxhtOqSXRg

 

Today’ you are going to read a range of words, which contain the ‘i’ phoneme. Sort the words into two categories; the short pronunciation (fin) and the long pronunciation (find).

 

Challenge – Choose some of the words, that you sorted and write a sentence. How many alternative ‘i’ words can you use in one sentence?

 

Miss Powell’s group:

Before we start, let’s practise all of our sounds - https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/flashcards-speed-trials  (Phase 2 & 3) Write down the score you get and see if you can beat it tomorrow! If you cannot access phonicsplay, test yourself on the sound mat!

 

In Phonics, today, we are going to be learning about the ‘qu’ grapheme. Make a list of all the ‘qu’ words you know! Can you add to yesterday’s list? Practice reading some ‘qu’ flashcards with Geraldine the Giraffe - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wawwlrbQtPE

 

I would like you to have a go at writing ‘qu’. Have a go at writing it in a range of different ways. You could use shaving foam, pasta, chalk, paint, whiteboard, Lego etc. How many different ways can you write ‘qu’?

 

Have a look at the worksheet. I would like you to look at the qu pictures and have a go at writing the words.

 

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, o-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 learning another split digraph – u-e (huge brute).  We already know oo (poo at the zoo), ue (give me a clue) and ew (chew the stew).
