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.
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.
Today's sound is 'h'. If you have a free subscription to the phonics bug website you can follow the link to the 'h' lesson.
This week we are going to move on to trigraphs. Trigraphs are three letters and when they sit together they make one sound. There are four trigraphs that we will cover this week- igh, ear, air and ure. We will then have covered all phase 3 sounds. I find that the trigraphs are the hardest to remember which is why I like to leave them to the end. After we have have covered these sounds this week I will put games on the website as part of the phonics lesson to keep revisiting the sounds, along with activities to do.
Today's sound is 'igh'. igh is a trigraph because it is three letters and when they are sat together they make one sound.I usually get the children to remember the trigraph word by associating it with the triangle having three sides.
If you have got a free subscription to the phonics bug website you can follow the link to the 'igh' 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 'igh' and then words that contain 'igh' such as light, night, fight 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 to go to the Oxford Owl and choose an ebook to read. There are so many books on this website. The more you can read each day the better.

This week we are going to focus on shape. We have already done some work on 2d shapes in class so this week we will re visit 2d shape and then move onto 3d shape. Below are some powerpoints to revisit 2d shapes. There is also a song here that the children love. Below is a list of ideas that you can do at home to revisit 2d shapes. Have a go at at least one of them and if you are able to, record it in your red book.
