If you have got a free subscription to the phonics play website you can play the flash cards game. We do this every morning to revisit the sounds that we already know. You can choose the sounds that you want to use to play the game by ticking each box. If your child is working at phase 2, you can just use phase 2 sounds or if your child is working at phase 3 you can revisit phase 2 and 3 sounds.

Flashcards game

The following lessons, your child will only do one of. This will either be a phase 2 or a phase 3 lesson. Please refer to your home learning packs to see which phase your child is working towards. Their targets are on coloured card of either green, blue, yellow or pink.

Phase 2

Today's sound is 'r'. If you have a free subscription to the phonics bug website you can follow the link to the 'r' lesson.

r lesson

Phase 3

Today's sound is 'ur'. or is a digraph because it is two letters and when they are sat together they make one sound.If you have got a free subscription to the phonics bug website you can follow the link to the 'ur' lesson.

'ur' lesson

The children are used to taking part in these lessons daily. There is a section for sounds, reading, spelling and writing. When it comes to writing I usually get them to write on a whiteboard but they can use their red books for this. They usually have a go at writing 'ur' and then words that contain 'ur' such is fur, burst, hurt etc. 

At the end of phonics we watch Geraldine the giraffe on youtube who has a different video for each sound.

For Literacy today, I'd like you look at the phase 2 or phase 3 powerpoints, depending on which phase you are working towards. The powerpoints are at the bottom of this page.

Red Strawberries

Have a go at reading the words on the CVC words powerpoint. Can you say what the word is?

Purple Grapes and Yellow Bananas

Have a go at reading the phase 2 questions and then answer them with yes or no. 

Green Apples

Have a go at reading the phase 3 sentences. You may need support with some of the phase 3 sounds as we haven't yet covered all the sounds in phonics. 



Today we will be practising take away. Have a go at this warm up exercise here or download it from the bottom of this page.

Can you get a grown up to help you find some objects in the home and then get them to take some away like monster does in the activity? Can you guess how many will be left if your grown up takes 1, 2, 3, 4 away? You can work with numbers as big as you like. Can you take away from 5, 10, 15, 20? 

To extend your learning you can draw the objects in your red book to show that you understand. Or you could get your grown up to write some subtraction number sentences for you to complete.

Have fun!!
