Pick a few and ask your child to write them down on a piece of scrap paper. You don’t need to do all in one session. Introduce the sound ch with actions - watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2HYM9VXz9k – you will need to fast forward to 9 mins 24 seconds – the actions are really important at this level and should be encouraged. Then watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyrYDitif1o
Practice writing ‘ch’ – look at some words: chip, rich, chill, much, shop, fish, chim, nich, chig, fich, lish. Some have the sh sound from before the hols.
Day 2: sing the jolly phonics song with actions again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2HYM9VXz9k remember to start at 9m24s. Write out some captions. Read together and model blending tricky words. Is it fish and a bag of chips? The rich man had a big chin. The chicken got a chill. Can they write some of the chip words by sounding out?
Day 3: Sing the alphabet. Introduce the new sound th and how to read and write it. Watch jolly phonics clip – we encourage the naughty clown who sticks his tongue out to make the sound – this stops the children from making a ff or v sound. Tell them that when they go back this is the only time they can stick their tongue out at Mrs Hewitt or Mrs Cox!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2HYM9VXz9k – you will need to fast forward to 10 mins 11 seconds. Follow this with Mr Thorne - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6U354eD-hgQ. Practice reading some words: them, then, that, this, with, thin, thick, chop, such, shock, bash.

Can a chip be as big as a fish? Can a chip be thick? Read them together – encourage your child to sound the words out looking for the ch, sh and th sounds.
