Year 1 Letters and Sounds

Spellings

Your spellings for the week are:

clue, blue, glue, true, saw, paw, raw, claw, lawn, yawn

 

If your child usually has five spellings, please focus on the highlighted ones.

Monday

First of all, can you remember what sound these digraphs make?  Tell your grown up. 

 

ay             ou             ie            ea           oy        ir

 

We already know the grapheme for /oo/.  Can you read the words below?

 

soon           fool            zoo            spoon           gloop

 

Watch this video of Mr Thorne to find a new way to spell the /oo/ sound. 

How many things can you find around your house with the /ue/ spelling?

 

Tuesday

What sound/grapheme did we learn about yesterday?  Can you write it down?  Well done, it was /ue/.

 

With your grown up read the words in the PowerPoint below by using segmenting and blending as a reading strategy.   Once you have done that, complete the /ue/ worksheet. 

Wednesday

First of all, can you remember what sound these digraphs make?  Tell your grown up. 

 

ay             ou             ie            ea           oy        ir        ue

 

We already know the grapheme for /or/.  Can you read the words below?

 

fork           cork        form          torn            horse

 

Watch this Alphablocks episode to learn a new way to spell the /or/ sound. Did you spot them in the animation? Let's look at the new /or/ grapheme - /aw/ and /au/.  The /aw/ spelling is usually found at the end of a word and the /au/ spelling is either at the beginning or in the middle of a word. 

 

Play Buried Treasure on Phonics Play to practise segmenting and blending these spellings in words.

Thursday & Friday

We have been learning the /au/ spelling and the sound it makes.  Please complete the /au/ workbook below.  On Friday, ask your grown up to text you on your spellings.  Can you remember to segment the sounds and write the sounds that you hear.  Remember to think about the letters that you need to make the /or/ and /ue/ sounds.
