Summer term - 2

Welcome back. On this page I have put daily phonics activities which teach the children letter sounds, letter formation and develop their skills to hear the sounds within a word. I have also put activities to develop children's listening skills, rhyming skills and memory skills.

If your child is starting School in September 2020 then it is during the summer term when we start to introduce the children to the letter rhyme and the sound of each letter. We use the RWI scheme ( Ruth Miskin phonics scheme). Please have a go at the letter activity each day.

I have attached two useful links below to help you.

NAME THAT NOISE

Encourage children to close their eyes, or use a blindfold. Make a variety of sounds around the house and ask them to identify the noise they hear. Examples might include, closing a window/door, dropping a book on the ground, tapping on a table, rattling some keys, flipping a light switch, or opening and closing a drawer.

I SPY- listening to a description.

Give children 3 clues about an object in the room, and ask them to try to guess what you’re describing. For instance, to describe a ball, you might say, “I spy something round, and filled with air, that bounces.” Take turns, and allow your child to give clues while you guess what they’re describing.
