Phonics and Spellings

We thank www.twinkl.co.uk for allowing us to host their resources on our website during the lockdown period.

Here we will be posting sounds from phase 3 up to phase 5 that we want you to revise.

This should include reading and writing the sound, as well as reading and writing it within words.

After this you should challenge yourself to write these words and sounds within sentences e.g.

 

My sound is 'sh'

1. Read and write it in the words ship, wishing, fish

2. Write it in a simple sentence. 'The ship is on the sea.'

 

CHALLENGE: include some Year 2 sparkle e.g. adjectives, exclamations, questions, commands.

'The huge, dark ship was on the stormy, blue sea.'

'What a scary ship that is!'

'Have you ever travelled on a ship?'

'Get off that ship now!'

 

We will also be giving you Year 2 words to keep learning and spelling rules to remind yourself of.
