Today we are going to look at blending and segmenting. The children need to firstly be able to hear each sound, we need to
the word, i.e ….d – o – g. This will eventually help your child to write words.
Here are some words the children can practise stretching:
To read the word the children need to recognise the letters and then
sounds together i.e. d – o – g … dog!
Can your child have a go at squeezing the letters (sounds) in these words: tap, pan, sap, at & sat?
Last week, we learnt all about the sounds- s a t p i n. We found objects beginning with these sounds, we watched the number blocks episodes on you tube- see below, and we practised writing the letters. If your child has mastered these sounds, and can tell you a word that begins with each sound e.g. ssss sand, then they are ready to move on to the above and this weeks learning.

If your child is not confident with these sounds yet, there are lots of things you can do to practise. Please email your class teacher on [email protected]/[email protected] for further support with this.
You could try playing some Phase 1 free games on PhonicsPlay to help your child tune into sounds.
