After the meeting on Tuesday, we have decided that we will be putting the children’s phonics sounds into the back of their Home to school log. Everybody will have this by the end of next week.
The highlighted sounds are the sounds that they need to practise. If you are unsure of the sound, then Mr Thorne does phonics does some brilliant videos modelling the sounds and giving examples.
Phonic games ideas Here are some games you could play at home:
- Bingo – reading and spelling words on a bingo board. Your child could read or spell different words and win bingo if they can read or spell words correctly.
- Word hunt – finding words and keywords hidden around your home.
- Matching pairs – finding and reading matching words. Word cards could be hidden for your child to find.
- Silly voices – say sounds in a high, low, happy or grumpy voice.
- ‘Skip to it!’ – run, jump, hop or skip to a certain word.
- ‘Fishing for phonics’ – ‘fish’ for words written on ping pong balls. The balls could be in the bath or hidden in the house. Your child could use a net to try and catch the balls.
- Sing an alphabet song – have lots of fun learning an alphabet song. Then point to a letter and ask your child to tell you it’s letter name and sound.
Thank you for all your support.
