Friday Phonics Challenges with Mrs Sheldon

On Fridays I’ll be setting a phonics challenge to practice using the sounds you’ve learnt so far with Mrs Holmes. If you need any help or an activity doesn’t seem to suit your child's learning style just let me know and I’ll get my thinking cap on! Keep your eyes peeled on Thursday afternoon for Friday’s challenge...


These 'sound mats' from Twinkl are really helpful in supporting children with their phonics. They give a little picture clue to jog their memories.

Can you write the shopping list? You might need to pause as you go along to give your child time to write. (It became a bit fast and chaotic with my helper joining us!).

Here's a little video to show you how to play this week's game. You can adapt it to suit your child but the aim of the game is to:
-spot our new digraphs th, ch and sh
-sound out the words e.g. p-a-th
-blend the sounds to read to the whole word. e.g. path (sorry I didn't model that in the video!)
(Also apologies to Mr Sheldon for putting him on the spot when he's not had any phonics lessons!!!)
