Literacy/Phonics provision

  • Alphabet catch, each time you pass the ball say the next letter of the alphabet. Time yourself to see if you can get faster!
  • Sentence jumble. Write out some simple sentences, cut the sentence into each words and jumble them. Can you put them into the right order? Tip – look for clues like the full stop and capital letter, read it back to see if it makes sense.
  • Practice your handwriting/sight word writing/name writing in a tray filled with flour, soil, talc, shaving foam anything that leaves a trail!
  • Firm favourite in the Birkett house – reading treasure hunt. Write some simple sentences as clues to lead them to the next one. Clues like ‘find me at the top of the stairs.’ ‘I am in the red pot in the bedroom.’ This activity is a good one to differentiate for your child. You can include picture clues, or make the sentences more complex.
  • Can you write out some invites and tickets for a family film night? You could even make a little tuck shop 😊
