Today we will be exploring the ‘y’ Green Froggy sound.

I would like the children to practise their blending skills by reading ‘y’ Green Froggy words using the powerpoint (see below).

Then, I would like the children to practise their segmenting skills by spelling 'y’ Green Froggy words which their parent/carer says out loud (see spelling list below). 


Extra Challenge:

Write sentences including at least one of the ‘y’ Green Froggy words. 

Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end. 

Also, remember to write on the line and use lead-ins/lead-outs



Practise reading and spelling high frequency words using the flashcards or powerpoint.

These are words which we use a lot in our reading and writing. 

Happy Family Day
