Phonics

In Year 2, phonics still plays a massive part in our everyday writing and we are always looking at how we can improve it.

In class, we might decide to use a phoneme strip or a sentence hand to help us with our writing. Some of us will robot talk the words to make sure that we have sounded out each sound of the word.

We are practising how to begin to read our work back and edit it so that we can improve it.

You can use Phonics Play at home to help you to practise as well.

If you are working at Phase 6, you can play Past Tense Penguin to help you get better at adding the suffix -ed to verbs to turn them into the past tense or Tumbling Tumbleweed to help you to practise adding the suffix -ing to verbs to turn them into the present tense.

If you are working at Phase 5, there are lots of games that you can play like Picnic on Pluto, Buried Treasure or Dragon’s Den to help you to recognise real and nonsense words.

Ask Miss Varley if you need some help.
