Practise reading all of the tricky words. You could also have a go at spelling the phase 2 and 3 tricky words using the look, cover and write method.

Words to Read:

Use your ‘phoneme fingers’ or point to the sound buttons to help. How many sounds are in these words?

Words to Write: twist, brand, plump, stamp

You could draw a phoneme frame in your exercise book to help you remember all the sounds.

Phonics Activity: Play ‘Musical Blending’
Write these words on separate scrap pieces of paper.

Spread them out on the floor. Play some groovy tunes and dance away. When the music stops jump on a word and blend it. Keep going until you have read all of the words.

Literacy Activity – Role Play
Ask your child to take your lunchtime order – try make it really extravagant!
They can use their exercise book or a piece of paper to write it down in a list using their phonic knowledge.
E.g. I would like…
a hotdog with ketchup,
some crisps,
an ice cream… and more.

Expect to see phonetically plausible words such as sum crisps, an ighs creem.
Swap over so they can have a go at telling you their order.

You can count just about anything! Have a go at counting different actions. Have a go at these…

10 star jumps
5 claps
3 shoulder shrugs
6 clicks
Can you think of anymore?

Write out the numbers 0-20 on some paper or card, cut them up and then ask a grownup to mix the numbers up – don’t peek! Then, see how quickly you can put them into the correct order. You could ask someone to time you and then see if you can get faster when you try again.
