As always please begin phonics by recapping all phase 2 sounds and then the first sounds in phase 3, if your child is confident with these then please move onto the next sounds such as the digraphs ch,sh,th, qu and ng. You can do this in anyway you wish such as flash cards, a sound hunt or even finding them in their reading books.
Now it is time for you to recap your memory words. These are words we cannot sound out we just have to know them I loved seeing your hunt for memory words yesterday. Can you remember what words you were looking for?
Recap all phase 2 and 3 memory words.
As a warm up we would like the children to use the video below to read phase 2 words working on their segmenting and blending skills and even reading words by sight and their memory. If your child is struggling with segmenting and blending independently please practise with them, the more the children practise the better they will becoming at reading. If your child is finding phase 2 difficult please do not move onto the next step instead continue to work on phase 2 sound recognition, letter formation and segmenting and blending simple words. Pause the video as and when you need to so you can clearly hear your child's segmenting and blending skills.
Today we are looking at the digraph 'th'. Your child may be familiar with this sound as you have been recapping phase 3 sounds daily. Ask them if they can think of a word with the sound 'th'. Where would this sound usually come in a word? Beginning, middle, end, or both?
Practice writing the 'th' sound.
Have a go at reading words with the 'th' sound.
Now using your best handwriting, write the words below.
