During Term 6 we would complete Phase 5 Phonics, as well as re-visiting previous phases. 

Set yourself either a one or two minute "time challenge", how many sounds can you correctly say

Oscar's Challenge

When you've practised a sound or spelling of a sound, apply your learning by using the sounds in words, then create a sentence.

  • Say it out loud first.
  • Then try and write it.
  • Make sure it makes sense ( it doesn't have to be true!)
  • See how many words that contain that sound you can fit in the sentence.
  • Try using different styles of sentences eg a question sentence or an exclamation sentence.
