We would like you to have a go at reading real and alien words using the NEW Phonics Play website.
Today, choose from 'Buried Treasure', 'Dragon's Den' or 'Picnic on Pluto'. Click on phase 5 and then click on 'Revise all phase 5'. Encourage your child to spot the sound / sounds that are 'hiding' within the word before they try and sound it out.
You could also have a go at spelling some Year 1 common exception words (list 4) on spellingframe.co.uk. Click on 'Practice / Test'. Have a go at the 'Begin practice' activities and then the test.
