Good Morning Year 1,

Thank you for all your hard work yesterday!

Let’s see how many of you can complete today’s activities. Remember to show me what you have been doing.

Mrs E


To start today's phonics please can you recap all of your phase 3 and phase 5 sounds that you find tricky. You can use your sound mats or you could use the flash cars on phonics play



Can you now practice some of your tricky words- You need to be able to read and spell these! Practise the ones that you find difficult. Choose up to 5.



Today we want you to look at the sound 'au' like in haunted and 'or' like in fork.


Can you read and write these words? 

autumn    fork

Paul        fort

haunt       port

sauce      sport


Write the words on flash cards and sort into the column with the correct digraph.







Can you think of any more words you could put in your chart?


Can you play Buried and practice the sounds?
