Reception Letters and Sounds

This week's letters are:

 

 

Everyday name each letter (as you hear it in the alphabet song) and say the sound it makes (phoneme).

 

To make the phoneme for the letter 'i' put your hands to your nose and draw them out to the side like the whiskers on a mouse and make the short 'i' sound over and over again just like you can hear in the words 'ink' and 'insect'.

 

To make the phoneme for the letter 'n' put your arms out like the wings on an aeroplane and make the long 'n' sound just like you can hear in the words 'nice' and 'nest'.

 

Tuesday: Look around your house. Can you find any objects that begin with each sound? How many have you found? 

Wednesday: Write each letter over and over again. What would your like to use? A pencil on paper? A crayon? Use chalk on the patio outside. Pour a little flour on to a coloured surface (e.g. blue dinner plate, a green tray) and use your finger to write each letter. Could you paint the letter. 

 

Thursday: Use your school letter pack to think make some words using the sound tiles you have so far (c s a p t i n) What words can you make? (e.g. as, it, tin, pin, sat, cat, can, pit, pat, sit, etc).

 

Friday: Draw or paint something that has each sound in it. It does not have to be at the beginning of the word, it could be at the end. Can you label your picture? Ask an adult to help you, if you are not sure how to write the letter ask the adult to write it for you and you can copy over the top of it. 

Don't forget to complete your letter sound sheets!
