Week Two of Phase Three!
We hope that you enjoyed starting the next phase within the Letters and Sounds programme and moving on to learning new sounds. We continue this week and introduce 'digraphs' which are two letters that make one sound. Take time to explain this idea to your child so that they understand that two letters can be joined together to make one sound as this is a key focus within Phase 3. Using phoneme frames will help you with this. Don't forget to follow the suggested format if you are able to (see last week for guidance on this).
Phase 3 Read and Roll
This game requires a dice. If you don't have a dice at home you can download a paper one and make your own. Your child rolls the dice and has to work out what number it has landed on. They then go to the grid and find the right number and read the first word. When they get it right they can either colour it in or place a counter on it. The first number to have all the words read is the winner. Your child can continue if they would like to find which numbers came first, second, third etc. to build in some ordinal numbers for Maths!
The Phase 3 Sounds Mat is for your reference or to help you with your sentence writing.
