This weeks homework is to practise our new phonic sounds. The sounds in your child’s homework book have been taught this week – they are doing so well! Our aim is to learn to recognise them speedily.
Please help your child to recognise the new sounds and to form them correctly using the rhyme in the front of their homework book. Some children are moving onto special friends, these are the digraphs, two letters that make one sound, e.g. sh or trigraphs, three letters that make one sound, e.g. igh.
Thank you for reading with your child at least three times a week. As your child begins to bring home the sound blending books which contain the sounds they have learnt in phonics, please encourage them to “say the sounds, read the word.”
Say the sounds: h-a-t Read the word: hat
