We would like you to have a go at reading real and alien words using the NEW Phonics Play website.
Today, try playing 'Buried Treasure', 'Dragon's Den' or 'Picnic on Pluto'. Click on phase 3 and then the focus sound (see above). Encourage your child to sound out and then blend the words each time. You could then ask them to have a go at writing some of the words - remind them about how to spell the focus sound.
You could also have a go at spelling some words which contain phase 3 sounds on the game 'Alien Escape' on the phonics bloom website.
