Phonics

Hi everyone,

Now the last 3 sounds that we have been practising sometimes trick us out because they look similar.

ar
or
ur

Can you see that they all have a 'r' at the end?

 

We are going to practise them altogether today to make sure that they don't trick us out!

Firstly, I want you to tell your family what sound they make and what action we use for them. Then I would like you to watch the video below.

Practising ar, or, ur digraphs

 

Well done, next you are going to try to do some sorting. I would like you to get a piece of paper and split it into 3 parts. You can put one digraph in each part just like in my picture below. 
Then your phonics challenge today is to sort all of my words into the right part on your page. Parents, this works best if the child hears you say the word because that way they will have to sound out the word to work out which digraph is in it. Then they can try to write the word, or draw a picture to represent the word, in the correct column. Here are the words:

far

church

 

part

 

horn

 

burp

 

car

 

short

 

shark

fork

 

 

Which column has the most words in? Which column has the least words in?

 

Your last job is I would like you to pick 1 word from each column and put it verbally into a sentence. Can you try to write your sentences in your pink book? Remember to count how many words you are going to be writing down and take your time! Try to make it a super sentence!
