Phonics sounds of the day!


Mrs Clay's group


Recap sounds learnt so far s a t p i n d g o c k ck

Introduce the new sound e.  Watch the YouTube Jolly Phonics video and learn the song and the action.  Practise finding rhyming words.  Read a rhyme or story and find the rhyming words or practise saying 2 words eg cat and dog - do they rhyme?  or mouse and house?  The children need to know that the end of the words need to sound the same. You could use the Powerpoint presentation below to support.

Today we are consolidating the learning we have been doing this week. Recap the sounds we have taught e, u, r, h, b. Sing the Jolly phonics songs for these sounds to remind you of the actions. Play a simple game of bingo; I can see a t-o-p, m-u-g etc. Next ask your child what sounds they can hear in some words, for example if you ask your child what sounds they can hear in the word sun they would then say s-u-n. This is known as oral segmenting.
