This morning we will start our usual routine of recapping our Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds. Remember your child needs to know every phase 2 sound before they can start to learn phase 3. It may be the case they are only struggling with one sound from phase 2. Therefore, keep recapping this throughout the day so they have lots of repetition and they may start to look at phase 3.
Today we thought it would be nice to sing the sounds with our jolly phonics. Can you match the actions to the sounds.
Now it is time to recap our memory words. We had some great photos from your memory words yesterday. You are starting to write these independently and your formation is amazing. Look at the memory words below can you tell your adults which memory words you can see.
Today we will be learning a new sound. We are focusing on the digraph (2 letters that make one sound) ‘ng’. You will find this sound at the end of a word. Can you think of any words with the ‘ng’ sound? I know how much we love Mr Thorne so please watch and listen to the video below to learn all about ‘ng’.
Lets see if we can write the digraph ‘ng’ your letters should sit on the line and you ‘g’ is a descender so make sure it goes below the line
Now we have learnt more about the ‘ng’ sound look at the picture below. What can you see in the pictures? Can you hear the ‘ng’ sound as you speak? From the picture, I would like you to group the images into two groups. Write them out using your best handwriting.
Words with the ‘ng’ sound. Words without the ‘ng’ sound
Great job, I cannot wait to see them. Now your child should practice reading the words below.
If your child was confident with this, below I have a story about a king and his ring! Try your best to read the story and see if you can spot any ‘ng’ words. Your adults may help you with some of the tricky words.
