Phase 2 Phonics Letters SoundsLast week we completed the end of our phase 2 phonics. We will now spend our weeks up until Christmas reviewing these sounds, as it is important that children are fully immersed and secure in their use of phase 2 sounds before moving onto phase 3. We will be using our remaining time in Autumn term 2 to develop their confidence in phase 2 word blending, as this is an incredibly important foundation on which we will build their future phonics knowledge.
Buried TreasureAn interactive learning game where children must use their blending knowledge to read the word and decide if it is a real word or a fake word (pressing the back button will allow you to change the difficulty of the game).
Real or Nonsense Word Activity: In Year 1, the children will have a "Phonics Screening Check" - One of the activities in this check is for the children to blend to read a word and decide whether or not it is a real word or tricky word. You can use this activity to help practice blending phonetically decodable words and sorting them into "Bob" if they are real or "Obb" if they are nonsense words. This activity will require lots of blending/discussion about the word.
