Hold up or write the tricky word 'was', does your child recognise it?
Can they say a sentence using the word 'was'?
Sound talk the word, raising a finger for each phoneme. Ask your child to copy you.
Discuss the letters required for each phoneme (sound), using letter names.
Explain that it sounds like we need /o/ in the middle of this word but this word is special and we have to train our brains to remember to spell it with the letter a.
Ask children to trace the shapes of the letters with their fingers then write the tricky word.

Repeat this process wih the tricky word 'you'.

Play Buried Treasure using the words: sniff, smell, brown, groan, floam, pliff, stell, vrown.
Or alternatively play Buried Treasure/Dragon's Den/Picnic on Pluto on Phonics Play, selecting phase 4 CCVC words.

Finally, read the following three sentences together:
Sniff the sweet jar.
Yum! Scoop the sweets into a bag.
Chomp the sweets and crunch them up.

Which sentence does your child like best?

Using the phoneme frame, make together the words:
stop
spin

Encourage your child to make the following words on the phoneme frame all by themselves.
spot, step, trip, from, skip, plan

Read the first sentence aloud (The frog is strong.) and encourage your child to write it down.
This could be written on a piece of paper using a different colour for each word, a chalk board, written in flour on the worktop, using chalk on a paving slab or using a cotton bud in gloop (cornflour + water)

If any children find writing very difficult or tiring then they could create the following two sentences from magnetic letters or you could share the writing but please ask your child to write the CCVC words. As your child writes, please encourage them to sound talk to help them work out how to spell the words.

His green skin has bumps.
He likes to swim in his pond.
