‘Learn and Believe, Aspire and Achieve’


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







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.



This will take you to an introduction video all about the sound. 


One the right hand side of the screen you will see games that link to the sound. Have a go at the blending and reading games. 


Reading activity for 'j'


A game we play in school is called 'beat the clock'. Write down the following cards a little bit like this.  You might want to put a little sound button under each sound to support your child with their blending. They push on the sound button and say the sound. 



Use these words for j










For a little challenge you might want to use these words






How many words can you read in a minute? Can you beat your score? Why not make a little scavenger hunt of words and your child has to find the word, bring it to you then blend it. 





Practise writing j.


Use the lane end way. 

We say, 

" up, down curl and dot. J"

Can you write a sentence about a j word?Pick a word from the list and write about it.A silly sentence is good. How about 


I can jump in jam.


Don't forget finger spaces and a full stop!
