Phase 2 phonics - week commencing 08/02/21

Phase 2 additional activities:


Monday: Today's focus is the phoneme 'u'. Can you have a go at forming the phoneme with things you can find around the house. This could  be clothes, shoes, paint, shaving foam, lego - be as creative as you like!


Tuesday: Today we are going to be reading cvc words with the u phoneme in them. Once you are confident reading them can you cut the word away and have a go at matching them back together. If you can do this can you have a go at writing some sentences or captions with the words in them?


Wednesday: Our live session today is going to focus on the 'r' phoneme. Can you hunt around your house for anything that begins with a 'r'? Can you take a picture and then write a list of what you found. Listen carefully to see what other sounds you can hear in the word. 


Thursday: Today we will be focussing on the tricky word booklet. This builds on the word we were doing last week on tricky words. We cannot sound out tricky words, you just have to know them. Once you have completed the booklet can you write some captions or sentences with tricky words in them?


Friday: Today we will recap the phonemes we have recently covered - ck, e u and r. I would like you to make some 'silly soup' using pictures you have drawn or printed using these phonemes. You will need a big bowl and wooden spoon to stir your pretend silly soup. You will put in pictures you have drawn or printed of different items beginning with a particular phoneme. For example, if you were making silly soup with items beginning with 'r' you could put in a rat, a ram, a rug, a rag and a rugby ball. If your silly soup begins with an e you could put in an egg and an elephant. 


Whilst stirring your soup you would sing:


"we're making lots of silly soup, 

we're making soup that's silly,

we're going to put it in the fridge,

to make it nice and chilly!"
