phonics

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

 

                    ee                  

                                  igh                              

 

 

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:

 

Then as always have a little go at the blending games opposite

 

 

Reading activity for ee

 

Firstly, have a go at reading these ee words. Remember, you might need a sound line and buttons under the sounds to support. 

 

see

feel

weep

feet

jeep

seem

meet

week

deep

keep

 

For a challenge have a go at these words

 

speech

screech

screen

sweet

 

I know how much lots of you loved playing the silly soup game. Remember the song!

 

Silly soup song

 

Then fold lots of ee words up and put them in the soup. Sing the song and your child picks out a word to blend. Take it in turns. Why not add in some words with sounds that you feel your child might need a little more practice in? I would love to see some pictures of your silly soup games. 

 

Writing practice for ee 

 

Can your child write  the sentence 

 

I can see a sweet tree.

 

independently. 

 

Show your child the following picture. Ask them what they can see? Prompt them to the full sentence, I can see a sweet tree.  Say it a few times to help them to remember it. Then ask them to write, using their knowledge of the sounds, finger spaces and a full stop at the end. 

 

 

Tricky word practice

 

Tricky word splat

 

Using the tricky words that we have learnt, write them onto labels on a piece of paper. Say a word and your child has to splat the word, with a splatter or their hand! 

 

You might use the tricky words: 

I, no , go , to , into, the

 

he, she, me, we, be, me, all , you, are, was, they, my, her

 

Wednsday 10th June 2020

 

Today we are going to look at 'igh'. 'igh' is a trigraph. This is 3 letters that make one sound, just like a digraph like sh and ch makes one sound too. It is important for your child to recognise that when they see these three letters together, the sound it makes is 'igh'. 

 

To begin our work on 'igh', please watch the introduction video on espresso, as always. 

 

 

Then practice what you have learnt with the blending games that you will find on the right hand side of the screen.

 

 

Practice reading the following igh words. Please put a sound line under the igh sound to support your child with the blending of the words. 

 

high

sigh

light

might

night

right

sight

figh

tight

tonigh

 

For a little challenge have a go at these words: 

highlight

fright

flight

 

Reading activity for 'igh' 

 

For a reading activity today play, cross the river. Make a river with a blue blanket or towel and make a set of cards. Remember, igh is one sound so goes on one card. 

Place down three cards that make one of the words above. Your child jumps across the river, blending the word. Then say the word fully. Try not to fall in the river! 

 

 

Can you read the sentence that goes with this picture? 

 

 

Put on the light at night.

 

Writing activity for 'igh'

 

Can you have a go at writing a word for each of the pictures. 

 

 

 

 

 

As  always, if you have any questions, comments or need support, don't hesitate to contact us on the reception e mail or on your tapestry account.
