Hi Lucy, Rowan, Cooper and parents,


How are you all? I hope you are having fun in all this lovely weather. Don't forget to email me and let me know how you are getting on. Send photos and videos of what you are up to and photos of your work, I would love to hear from you. 




Recap phase 3 sounds: using the Sound Phonics Phase 5 Book 1 (in your pack), look at p4 (revision). Ask your child to tell you sounds on lines 3,4,5. Please note if they are weak on any sounds and practice over the coming weeks. They could also do p5 and 6. 


Phase 5 phonics:

  1. These are the sounds we have covered so far: ay, ou, ie, ea, oy, er, ue, aw, wh pronounced 'h' and 'w', ph Use the flashcards in the pack to practice these- hide them around the house/ garden and see if your child can tell you the sound they make. 
  2. Please use today and tomorrow to practice the ones they are not sure of. You could do this by:
  • specific pages in the Sounds Phonics phase 5 book
  • playing games on Phonics Play - phase 5 : Picnic on Pluto, Dragon's Den, Buried Treasure- choose the sounds that they need practice.
  • Espresso :search for Ash's Phonics- choose the sounds that they need practice. (password is on letter in pack)
  • play snap, memory pairs etc with cards in the pack


It would be helpful if I knew which sounds from phase 3 and 5 the children are struggling with, so we can revisit them. Feel free to email them to me. Many thanks.


Don't forget to read, do your word pots and spellings. Spelling test tomorrowwink
