Mrs. Lenagan’s Phonics Tutorials

There will now be 4 online tutorials per week, covering 4 different sounds from Phase 5 which is what the children were working on in school before the closure. These are designed to be active sessions for children join in with, similar to what they did in school. The children only need a piece of paper, a pen/pencil and a grown-up to sit next to them for support. The role of the adult is to check for correct letter formation (cursive print), support with segmenting and blending of words and support the sentence application at the end. All of which will all be explained and guided throughout. Each week, spellings will be set for year 1 children based on the sounds learned and will include the common exception words (full lists of CEW can be found on class pages on the blog).

Please feel free to leave a comment, blog any work on School Spider and re-watch as many times as necessary, until the children know and can use the sounds. There are also explanations of online follow up games that can be used on tablets, phones and computers to apply the learning from the tutorial.

There will be a new link on class blogs Monday to Thursday for the latest tutorial.
