Year One

This week we are reviewing the grapheme and phonemes we have learnt this term. These are:


au, ey, a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e, u-e, c, y and al


Most of these you have been practising with your child through their spellings homework.


Open up the Year 1 PDF below for more practise.




This week in phonics we are reviewing the letters of the alphabet and the other phonemes we have been working on this term:


qu   zz    ll     ff      ss    ch     sh    th     ng     nk     ai      ee       igh        oa


Can you hear the sounds in words? Can you match words to their pictures? Use sound talk to sound out the words for your child. e.g. ch-i-p-s (chips). Can your child blend the sounds together and say the word you have sounded out? Repeat with other words. e.g g-a-p (gap), w-a-x (wax), r-i-ng (ring), f-ee-l (feel),

f-r-igh-t (fright). When your child is creating a picture, model how to label it, perhaps your child recognises a letter, do they want to have a go at writing it themselves? Wow! Amazing! 


Reception and Year One:


Please access Oxford Owl to complete your child's phonics reading for this week.  They have been assigned two texts.  Please read these books multiple times this week, practising the segmenting and blending of these sounds in words.  Children should recognise their graphemes in isolation or in words by the end of the week. 

They also need to practise reading the harder to read and spell words on sight, these can be found in the reading books and/or inside your child's blue Reading Record Book.  

Your child should also practise the formation of these graphemes, using a piece of paper and a pencil.  Repetition is extremely important at this point in your child's learning.

Do not forget to also practise those harder to read and spell words listed in your child's Reading Record.

Below is a snakes and ladders game that might be another fun way to practise.
