In our phonics lessons we have been continuing to focus on Phase 5, which includes lots of segmenting/blending of sounds which help to support the children's reading development. It is vitally important to support your child at home with the development of these skills by reading with them regularly to enable them to practice improving their fluency when reading.
The phonics website links below are all very good at providing a range of phonetic activities and I am sure that your child will have fun playing as well as learning new sounds, tricky words and reading sentences. As previous mentioned the last of the games listed below focuses on consonant clusters which is when two consonants sit next to each other in a word. e.g. dr / pl/ str/ cl and this will help the children to recognise these phonics patterns in words.
Even if you only manage to play one of these games twice a week it will make a real difference to your child's phonics knowledge.
Have fun with PHONICS!!
