This week we are going to focus on the following 2 sounds. Please look at ow for 2 days and  oi 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:






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






Reading activity for ear


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

Refer children back to when we learnt 'igh' - remember, this was a trigraph, 3 letters that make one sound. Ear is just the same. When we see e-a-r together it makes the ear sound. Try blending the sound in these words . 












For a challenge have a go at this word 




Reading practice for 'ear'


Let's have a look at reading some sentences containing a mixture of digraphs and trigraphs from our work in phonics over the last few weeks. Have a go - spot the digraphs first, this will help you to blend! 

These are all sentences about being ' in the woods'. 


Chip the dog runs to the woods. 

He is looking for rabbits but sees a fox.

The fox sees him and rushes off to his den. 

Chip dashes after it but cannot see it. 

He feels sad and runs back to his kennel. 




Writing practice for 'ow' 


Can your child write  ear words to match the picture. Remember - if you choose to use a phoneme frame, ear will go in one box - as it is one sound! 








































Ask your child to write a letter to their teacher - what would it start with? Dear Miss Miles. Can they write an independent sentence, then love from and their name. Dont forget finger spaces, full stops and capital letters. Encourage your child to be as independent as they can be.
