You can watch Mr Thorne and Geraldine at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nx2Tf9TE1bc

If you can, please practice the sounds already learned s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, f, l, ll, ss, j, v, w, x, y, z, qu

Try calling the sounds out for your child to write down. They don't have to do this on paper - they can use water and a paintbrush outside or in the bath, chalk on the ground, use their finger to draw it on the palm of your hand, draw it in the air, with their finger on the back of someone else in the house. Try to change the way they do it every day. 

Sing the alphabet song and point to each letter as you sing.

Get children to write 'sh' in the air or on the palm of their hand. Read the words and captions together model blending tricky words.

Your 'ow' words are: now, down, owl, cow, how, town, fown, owp, hown, lown.

Your captions are: This owl is not feeling sad and down. I park my car in the town. How do I feed a cow?

 

Activity ideas for ALL groups: 

Read the words and the captions together. Practice writing the words. Write the words on scrap paper and hide them around the house and garden - can your child run and find the words, bring them back and read them to you. Choose a caption, write it out - can they write it independently? Illustrate. Write the words on the ground with chalk or make your own flashcards - play letters and sounds hopscotch. 

 

 

 

Write the sound or words with your sound in the air, on paper, in mud, paint them, use soapy water and a paint brush and paint them on walls and floors outside or on the wall whilst in the bath. Look for words with your sound in your reading book or in a story book. Create rhyming words. Write a simple sentence using your sound, example if your sound is 'ch' you may want to write I can see a chick, you can then draw a picture to go with your sentence. 

As a guide: 

Day 1 - look at the sound on its own, practice saying the sound and writing the sound.

Day 2 - revisit the sound, write it on its own then look at words with your sound in.

Day 3 - revisit the sound - can they write it without your help? Can they remember any words? Practice writing words in lots of different ways. 

Day 4 - revisit the sound - write it and read words with your sound in. Practice breaking your word up i.e. corn would be c-or-n NOT c-o-r-n. Practice captions with your words in. 

Day 5 - write a simple sentence using a word from your sound's word list
