Phonics

This week we are going to focus on the following 2 sounds. Please look at w for 2 days and x for 2 days, NOT ON THE SAME DAY. 

 

                     w              

                          x                                   

 

 

Firstly, if you would like to watch a video all about the sound, log into Espresso ( logon details in your home learning pack) and follow the pathway:

 

Literacy – phonics – scrap’s phonics – click on the letter sound.

 

Then, if you can, have a go at the blending games on the right hand side of the page that go along with each sound.

 

 

Reading activity to go along with 'w'.

 

Have a go at blending the following words:

 

wet

win

wag

wet

web

wok 

wig

 

REMEMBER - SOUND BUTTONS UNDER EACH LETTER SOUND MIGHT HELP.

 

For a little challenge have a go at blending these words:
cobweb

wicked

 

and one of our high frequency words - will . See if you can take a picture of this with your magic camera and remember it for next time you see it. Keep practicing!

One of the games we like to play in Reception is yes/ no. Your child reads the caption ( independently if they can ) then answers the question with a yes or no! They might even want to draw a silly picture of it as an extra activity!

Wednesday 29th April - x

 

The sound we are looking at today is x. Can you think of any  words with a x sound in it? 

 

First, watch scraps phonics introducing x.

 

Then play the accompanying blending and reading games found on the right hand side of the page .

Can you read the following x words?

How about a little challenge? Can you read these words with 2 syllables? 

 

vixen

exit

 

Reading activity for x

 

Play a silly game with x words. Put down three cards with the letter sounds m i and x on, to make the word mix. Use a variety of letter cards, flashcards to change just one sound to make silly words! For example you might change mix to mux!!! What a silly word. 

It is helpful to have the vowels a, e,i, o , u to go in the middle sound so that your child can blend the words together to make silly words. They will have so much fun doing this!
