You can use the letters from your challenge bag, or 'Flashcards' on Phonics Play. Practise all the 'tricky words' learnt so far using flashcards, or sing along to the tricky word songs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R087lYrRpgY&t=4s

Take a piece of A4 paper and cut it in half. Put one half on top of the other and fold in half again. If possible, staple in the center fold to make a book. If you don't have a stapler, you could use a paper clip, a paper fastner or even put a stitch in the fold with wool!

You should now have an eight page mini-book.

Leave the first page as a front cover and open the book. Draw a line across the middle of the page and a few lines underneath. Repeat with the rest of the centre pages.

Now you are all set to create a farmyard book! Draw (or cut out and stick) a picture onto each page and write a sentence about it. If you would rather have a different subject for your book, feel free, but try to use the sounds that we have done in phonics so far!

If you'd rather, print out the PDF file and make a zig-zag book using the enclosed instructions.

Look at the picture or a farmyard above. Can you make a sentence up about it? Say that sentence together and then have a go at writing it down. Look at the other farmyard pictures. Can you make up sentences about these ones too?

If you would like a further activity, you could add these words to your 'Buried Treasure' coins...
thing, short, arch, longer, thicker, shing, chort, arth, ponger, zicker

Ask your child to say the word 'all'. Tell them that it is ANOTHER 'tricky' word.Say it together and then think about the sounds you can hear - 'or' and 'l'.
How do we usually write the first sound in this word? Write the 'or' sound down or find it in your challenge bag. Then find or write the 'l' sound, explain that as it is at the end of the word we need the double 'l'.
Now, if this wasn't a tricky word then 'or''ll' would be how to write it, but it is tricky, so one of these sounds is written in a different way. Explain that in 'all' the 'or' sound is made using the letter 'a'. Replace 'or' with 'a' making the word 'all'.

Being able to read 'all' is really useful, because if you can read 'all', you can read ball, call and fall too! Can you think of any other words with the word 'all' hidden inside?

If you would like a further activity, you could play sentence substitution with the following sentences:
She has worn red shorts – boots – boats – seen – He.
He sat down on the carpet – chair – fell – soil – weeds.
She has had lots of good books – food – seen – hard – Joan.

Today, we are going to read the captions below:
Did I hear a cow go moo? Put the chickens in the shed. I can feed the cows. The goat has horns that curl. The hens peck up corn. The pig has mud on his back. Ten piglets, born in the night, sleep tight. A sheep has a big wool coat. A sheep dog wags his tail.

You could write out a few of the captions for your child to read, use the photos or print out the PDF file.

Ask your child to read the caption you have chosen, sounding out and blending each word if needed. If your child reads the word by sight, this is fine too! You may have to repeat the sentence for them if they forget what they have read so far.

Once your child has read a caption, encourage them to draw a picture to go with the caption. If your child prefers and you have farm animals, you could make the caption together with small world animals, or make it out of playdough or other construction toys.

Investigate syllables in words. Think of the names of the people in your family and try to clap the syllables in their names. For example: Jess-i-ca has 3 syllables, Thom-as has 2 and Sam has one. Has anyone in your family got a name with more than three syllables?

These words have two syllables:
chicken, tonight, boatman, rooftop, farmyard, market, lightning, bedroom
Say the words for your child, then ask them to repeat the word with you. Ask them to repeat the word again, this time clapping the two syllables.
Now ask your child to have a go at writing one of the words. Say the word that you would like them to write and ask them to sound it out and have and write down the sounds that they can hear. You could use the formation sound sheets from your pack to help them. When they have had a go, hold up a card with the word on (or write it out) and ask your child to tick each letter they got right. If they made any mistakes, look at them together and correct them.
You can repeat for as many of the words as you wish, or you could make up your own words (but try to only use the sounds that we have learnt!).

If you would like a further activity, you could use the sentences in the photos to play the yes/no game.

There are also lots of phonics activities available on Busy Things too!
