This week, in phonics, we have 2 tasks for you!
Task 1 – Tricky words stepping stones:
We would like you to revise your phase 3 tricky words.

- Spread the words out on the floor or outside.
- Encourage your child to hop onto a ‘stone’ or into a ‘puddle’ and read the word they have landed on. Ensure care is taken if the surface is slippery. If you are playing the games as ‘Puddle Jumping’, your child could wear their wellies as they jump between the ‘puddles’.

Feel free to complete the other activities in the pack, if you want to!
