Phonics

Phase 1 Phonics

  • Nursery Rhymes

    • Sing different nursery rhymes

    • Who can finish the sentence? (E.g. Twinkle twinkle little star how I wonder what you…)

    • Who can identify words that rhyme? (Hickory Dickory dock, the mouse ran up the clock…)

  • Odd One Out

    • Name all the objects in a group. Say three words (two that rhyme and one that doesn’t). Who can identify the odd one out? (E.g. dog – hen – log)

    • Extension Activity: Children take turns to continue a rhyming string e.g. hat – cat – rat – mat

  • Shopping Game (alliteration focus)

    • Gather a number of objects from around the house, some beginning with the same sound and some that are different. Child 1 – I went to the shop and I bought some socks, soap and slippers. Can child two identify the beginning sound of each word? (S)

Phase 2 Phonics

  • Teddy Talk

    • Introduce teddy who likes to talk slowly saying the sounds in three letter words. Player one chooses a three letter object (without the other player seeing it) and says the word in Teddy talk: M – A – T. Player two then says the word peg. (this works with any household item that is three letters long)

  • River Crossing

    • Outside, draw a two by five grid. In each section write a different sound from; m, a, s, d, t and I (making sure they are all lower case). Can we make it to the other end of the ‘river’ by calling out sounds for the player to correctly jump on? (Emphasise the importance of not falling into the river either side and thinking carefully about our next move)

Mathematics

  • Number Rhymes

    • Can we sing our nursery rhymes that include a number strand? E.g. Five Current Buns, Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer, Little Speckled Frogs, Ten Fat Sausages, One Man Went to Mow.

  • Ordering Events

    • Can we place events throughout our day in the correct order? E.g. If we were at Nursery what would we do first? Then what?

    • Yesterday, after we had breakfast what did we do then?

  • Touch Counting

    • Can we count a group of items (up to five) making sure that when we count, we only touch each object once to correspond with the number we are saying?

    • Can we have a mixture of coloured objects and only count and pick out a certain colour and sort them into correctly coloured piles?

  • Dice Games

    • Can we roll a dice and whatever number it lands on can we recognise it through subitising? (Recognising that six is six without having to count out each dot)

    • Can we roll and number on our dice and then from that number count up to ten?

  • Using our Shapes

    • Can we order our toys from tallest to smallest? With this in mind can we use some positional language as well? (This toy is the tallest and this one is next, this one is behind and this one is in front)
