We recommend the fantastic online teaching resource www.phonicsplay.co.uk to use with your child at home. Phonics Play has lots of fun games for the children to play which supports the sounds and tricky words we learn at school. 'Tricky Word Trucks', 'Buried Treasure' and 'Picnic on Pluto' are particular favourites with the children, which helps them with their sight word recognition as well as supporting their segmenting and blending skills.
As well as Phonics Play, we recommend implementing phonics strategies throughout the day. For example, when shopping with your child you could practise segmenting and blending skills by saying to your child 'can you find the m-i-l-k' (saying the sound for each letter). Or when at home you could say 'time to b-r-u-sh your t-ee-th'.
Other simple activities include having a couple of hoops and getting the children to sort items around the home into the correct initial sound hoop - for example, all of the 's' items need to be sorted into the 's' hoop and all of the 'a' items need to be sorted into the 'a' hoop.
