As you have just seen our book this week is ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.
This week we are going to look at the digraphs ‘ow’ and ‘oi’. Today we are just going to look at recognising the sounds.
Can you write them in different ways for example…
- Paint and water
- Glitter on a baking tray
Now you could ask an adult to write out the following words onto pieces of paper. Can you turn a word over, draw on the sound buttons, read it and then put in in a pile of ‘ow’ sounds and ‘oi’ sounds.
Here are the words:
cow, howl, now, owl, down
coin, soil, foil, join, oil
Phonics 2.6.20 Today we are going to look at the ‘ow’ digraph. Here is a fun clip and game to play… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvq9bdm/articles/z64j47h There is also an ‘ow’ booklet if you would like to print it and complete some of the activities.
Phonics 3.6.20 Today we are going to look at the ‘oi’ digraph. Here is a fun clip and game to play … https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvq9bdm/articles/zfj6jhv Here is a word search to do with lots of different ‘oi’ words on it. If you haven’t got a printer, could you make your own with the following words … Coin, boil, soil, foil, oil, point
Phonics 4.6.20 Can you listen to the story the hungry caterpillar again? Can you have a go at writing the different foods that the caterpillar ate? I am challenging you to write 5 different foods. You can use the sheets below or just write them in your book. Have fun.
If you haven't already explored it, why not have a play on some of the phonics games on 'Phonics Play'. If you need any help, please let us know. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/
This week in phonics we are going to make our own Hungry Caterpillar book. You could do this in a variety of different ways. You could staple some pages together or even have a go at making your own zigzag book (see the picture).
Today I would like you to design the front cover and then each day we will work together to write the book. Let us know how you get on.
Today’s phonics is to write the first page of your book.
Here is mine.
Can you do the next two pages in your zig-zag book?
Here is mine ...
Can you do the next two pages in your book? You can make your book longer if you want to.
Today can you finish off your Hungry Caterpillar book? I am going to finish mine and then read it to you all later.
If you want to put a video of you reading yours on Tapestry then we would love to see them.
