Play phonics pop with your child. Play the game on set 1 (s,a,t,p). You could always encourage your child to have a go at writing these sounds in sand, flour or with chalk outside. It would be lovely to see a photo!

On a piece of paper, or outside with chalk if you prefer, write the letters s, a, t, p. See if you can find some small objects around your house like pasta, buttons, stones or pompoms. Use the tiny items to outline the shape of each letter. This will encourage your child to recognise the shape and using little objects will also help to strengthen their writing grip!

In phonics we are beginning to recognise some of the initial sounds in simple words. Children have been introduced to s, a, t, p. Have a look at the short bbc clips below then see if you can play some games.
1. alphabet jump - this is great if you can get outside and chalk on the ground, if not you can write the phonemes s,a,t,p on pieces of paper. Simply jump and say! You can make it a bit harder where an adult says the phoneme and the child has to find the correct one to jump on!
2. Phoneme soup - collect some items from around your house and put them in a bowl, As your child selects an object out of the bowl of soup they need to listen for the first sound. If your child can do this then extend with some 'sound-talking' for example, if you have a toy dog you might say find me the d-o-g and see if they can find it!

Can you go on a phoneme hunt? Ask your child to find you items which beginning with s,a,t and p. These are the items I managed to find. You could always email me a picture. Have fun!

Have a look at the games below to remind yourself of some of the things we have been doing in phonics so far!
