Children should be having daily practice of phonics. See below for ideas of activities.
Flashcards – Use the sound cards that we sent home to have daily practice of recognising sounds, you can use the list of RWI sounds to find any highlighted sounds to focus on or we will be sending out a daily sound to focus on.
Word Reading – Use the flashcards to build some words that children can practice reading, these should include a mixture of set 2 and 3 sounds and be both real words and made up words. There will also be some words sent out including the focus sound. The children should read words using this method:
Spot special friends – Fred Talk (sound it out) – Read the word.
Spelling – Children can practice writing 2/3 words using some of the special friends they have been practicing. You can also use this time to practice spelling some common exception words.
Reading – Children should be reading daily. Use their reading books or Oxford Owl online to read a book matched to your child’s ability. Each book should be read 2-3 times to build up fluency. Ask your children questions about what is happening during the stories, there are questions you can use at the back of the books.
