At the start of the term we were all recapping the phase 2 letter sounds. Some of us now have continued to learn more letter sounds within phase 2 and phase 3 of Letters and Sounds. We have all also begun to learn the skills and techniques in order for us to segment and blend CVC words independently. One of the techniques we use is called, ‘Robot arms’. This is where we segment the sounds in the words by using our arms to break the words down. All of the children really enjoy using this technique as it is fun and it keeps them moving. It is also really beneficial for them to understand the process of how to segment and blend CVC words independently.
This term we have also learnt some more tricky words, such as ‘we’, ‘me’, ‘be’ and ‘are’. To help us learn these tricky words we are using the games on the Letters and sounds website as well as playing ‘Tricky Word Bingo’ in class. All of the children have really enjoyed playing our Tricky word games.
