Phonics is a key part to Year 1 learning and children have daily sessions when at school.
There are lots of ways to incorporate phonics into your daily activities and there are also some fantastic websites and apps with interactive games.
We will add some challenges on here for you to have a go at whilst at home too.
Phonics Challenge 1
Phoneme Spotter Story
Read the short story with your child and see if they can spot all of the words with the 'ee' sound in.
They should notice that even though words have the 'ee' sound, the words might be spelt differently. In our daily phonics sessions we call this an Alternative Spelling.
Phonics Challenge 2
Your last challenge was to find the words with the 'ee' sound in and spot those alternative spellings. Today's challenge is to try and work out what all of these pictures are with the alternative 'ee' spelling today?
You don't need to print the sheet out, just write the lists of spellings in your book.
