Today we are revising our sound recognition.
Go to phonicsplay.co.uk and login with the username ThythornEYFS and the password thythorn
Scroll down to Flashcards and pay the game with Phase 2 sounds. See how quickly your child can complete the game by recognising the sounds.
Make a note of any that they don't recognise and then write these down on pieces of paper. Practise reading them with your child a few times until they are more confident and then ask them to find items in your home which begin with these sounds.
If your child is able to recognise all of the sounds, write down the following sentences for them to read and ask them to draw pictures next to each one to show their understanding.
The rug is red.
A cat and a dog.
My Mum and Dad.
A big duck in a pond.
