In our phonics lessons we are continuing to focus on Phase 5 which includes lots of segmenting/blending of sounds to help support the children's reading development. To enable your child to make the best progress possible it is essential that you read with your child regularly at home to enable them to practice their reading skills.
Also using the phonics website links below are an excellent way to provide phonetic activities that your child will have fun playing as well as learning new sounds, tricky words and reading sentences. The game 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.
Please make it your aim to play one of these games twice a week as it will really make a difference to your child's phonics knowledge. Thank you for your support and have fun with PHONICS!!
