Fun with Phonics
Username: march20 Password: home
Flashcard Speed trials
Work through the phases and at the end of each phase it will show you where your child needs more practise.
(It is important to regularly practise all the phonic sounds. If not practised, children can, overtime, forget).
Chester Zoo Live Stream. Did you manage to watch it?
If not, check out www.chesterzoo.org for zoo information and Chester Zoo Live Stream YouTube for amusing and informative clips of some of the animals.
Activity: Draw a picture and write about your favourite Chester Zoo animal
(e.g. what is it called? How big is it? How many legs does it have? Does it have fur or feathers?)
Please support your child with their writing but encourage him/her to write independently, as much as possible, initially. Remind them to say the words they wish to write down (out loud) and try to hear which letters they will need to use. Remember, when they work independently, don’t worry if they are not spelling all the words correctly. At this stage, it is important that they are ‘having a go’ and are using their phonic knowledge to help them write words and construct little sentences. Talk to your child about finger spaces between words, a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end. Encourage them to use the correct letter shape (pre-cursive) and check how they are holding the pencil. Pinch /crocodile grip the pencil between the thumb and first finger. The other fingers should be tucked behind for support. No pens for writing please.
