Practise these words at home.
In the Year One phonics test your child will need to be able to recognise and read words with these triple blends… spr, thr, spl, chr, str etc
These letters do not make one pure sound but need to be readily recognisable and readable at teh beginning of words.
Practise these daily
OU – Shout it out
Ow – Brown Cow
Practise these words
oi – Spoil the boy
oy – Toy for a boy.
Here are some ‘ay’ sound word practise. These can be used for reading and spelling. If your child gets stuck, help them to blend the word, or tell them if they are getting flustered, then try it again later.
Here is a link to past test papers to help your child at home. Children are allowed to dot and dash the words to help blend them to read. For instance, they would be allowed to mark up the following words, to read each sound individually, then blend to read.
Adults would not be permitted to help them.
Ask your child to tell you the ‘special friends’ and mark them up.
For example, ‘th’ in think are special friends as they make one sound.
‘ay’ in play are special friends as together they make one sound in the word play.
‘igh’ in flight are also special friends as the three letters together make one pure sound.
The pass mark has previously been 32 / 40.
I am starting a new Phonics Club with Mrs. Slinn after school on Mondays, which is by invitation only . I will be posting activities, website suggestions and ideas for home learning under the header ‘Phonics Club.’
