9:30 - 10:15 Phonics with Mr Elks


Today we will be exploring the 'ew' Cool Blue digraph.


I have emailed the Zoom link to parents.


During the Zoom meeting, I will be showing the ‘Phonics – ew - Cool Blue - powerpoint’ and the children will be reading ‘ew’ words from the real words flashcards. 


Afterwards, you may watch the ‘Monster Phonics Crew’ video below.


I would like the children to practise their blending skills by reading 'ew’ Cool Blue nonsense words using the flashcards (see below).


Then, I would like the children to practise their segmenting skills by spelling ‘ew’ Cool Blue real words

which their parent/carer says out loud (see flashcards below). 


Extra Challenge:

Write sentences including at least one of the 'ew’ Cool Blue words. Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end. 



Practise your alphabet by singing and dancing to the song below.
