We are experts at home learning now, we know it is time to recap our phase 2 and phase 3 sounds. You may want to shake it up a little and practice these with a hunt around your house; you may use flashcards, make your own game of snap or use the images below. Focus on the sounds you have been struggling with this week.



We were super good at our memory words yesterday. Can you remember any of them? How do we spell them? Have a quick fire recap of you phase 2 and 3 memory words.


We have been focusing on the 100 high frequency words. The children should be able to read the high frequency words without segmenting and blending. Can you add to more to your list of words to focus on.

Practice writing the ‘igh’ sound on the line and writing Pre-cursive. At school, we like to practice writing the sound at least 5 times.




Great work Reception. We can now have a look at reading words with the ‘igh’ sound. Keep a look out for where the ‘igh’ sound is placed in the word, middle or end? When we are reading use your finger as a ‘sound button’ under each sound to help you.

Brilliant reading. Now we will practice writing the words. Can you read the word to your child and sound it out together; can they segment the word to spell? Then ask them to write it independently and see if they spelt it correctly. Once they have finished the word, check it together and correct any misconceptions.
