Year 1 Letters and Sounds

Year 1 Letters and Sounds

 

This week our weekly focus in Letters and Sounds is /or/ and /ur/.

 

Let's have a look at what sounds these digraphs make!

 

 

Monday

Watch the video links above.  Write the graphemes /or/ and /ur/ in big letters.  Can you use different colours to write over the top and make a rainbow grapheme? 

Can you write the /or/ and /ur/ graphemes and make them decrease in size?  How many times can you write these in one minute? 

These activities allow the children to remember what the sound (phoneme) is and what it looks like (grapheme).

 

Reading 

Can you read the following words, using sound talk?

corn, storm, horse, short, fur, turn, curl,  

Tuesday

  • storm, corn, cord, form, born, horn, torn, fort, short, sport, porch, torch, scorch,

The children should use sound talk to segment and blend the words.  Can they identify the real and non real words? 
 

Thursday

Ask an adult to read these words for you and see if you can use your sound knowledge to spell them.  You would write them in pens, crayons, paint, chalk.  It is completely up to you.
