Continue to use Espresso phonics using the progression guidance from last week and Nessy. There are some additional activities below if you wish to use them.
These lesson videos have been created using the principles of the letters and sounds phonics program we use in school. There are a lot of similar features to the lessons I teach in school so they should be familiar with the terminology. Below are 5 lessons which will be revision lessons as I have previously taught these sounds but I feel will be useful all the same.
Your child will need a pencil and paper as they will be required to have a go at writing some words. The videos are around 30 minutes each, which you could break up if required!
In year 1 the letters and sounds program looks at different spellings of the same sound. The children have already learnt in reception the digraph (two letters in one sound) ai and here they are finding it can also be spelt as ay and a-e. Similarly they already know ee and here they are learning other ways of spelling can be ea and e-e.
