Use the RWI Sound Sheet to practice single sounds
Focus sound of the day: ay
This week we are working on new sounds that the children have not previously been taught. It is very important that the children learn to say each sound in the correct way. For example; todays sound is ay and is said in the same way as in the words – play and say.
Say the rhyme ‘May I play?’
Look at your RWI sound sheet – can you find sounds to make words using ‘ay’? (For example – s-ay … say) Find at least 5 and write each one down.
This week we are going to start to practice our key words – these are words that children need to be able to read by the end of the year. These are the first 5, practice reading them and writing them down.

For additional support with these new sounds you can go to the oxford owl site for help with correct pronunciation. Additionally, go to youtube and look for –
Phonics Lesson - Set 2 '**' sound for Reception and Year 1
Replace the ** with the sound that you are looking for. The teacher on these clips uses the RWI resources that we use in school.

Draw a picture of your favourite part of the Goldilocks story. Is it when Goldilocks tastes the porridge? When she breaks the chair or the bears find her asleep in baby bears bed? Maybe you have a different part of the story you enjoy.
When you have finished your picture write a sentence to go with it. For example
I Like it when …

Match the spoons to the bowls by size.
Write a label for each bowl – Daddy, Mummy, baby - place them by the correct bowl & spoon.
What size bowl do you think Goldilocks would have? Can you find one, put it in the correct place and write a label for Goldilocks bowl?
