Phonics Fun – Recap sh, ch

Hello everyone,

It’s Friday! Pick your favourite games to practise the sh and ch sounds and choose some you don’t feel so confident with.  Playing the games frequently really helps to cement that learning.  Use this opportunity to see if your child really understands  the sh and  ch sounds.  Let your children be your guides (and everyone else’s schedules too), mix and match games/sounds seeing if they can apply their knowledge in different contexts.  Most of the games are designed to be able to play anywhere and are easily adapatable.

Some suggested activities:

Play ISpy with sh and ch sounds.  What can you think of?

Play a guessing game and describe your sh or ch object for someone to guess.

Play Metal Mike with last weeks sounds.  Choose rhyming words to giveMike and change the game.

Play One of these Things with last weeks sounds. Choose rhyming words to find.

Write your name or any letters in the window condensation or in the bubbles in your bath.

Please look at the videos again for either inspiration or clarity.  Any questions, please email.  There is no right way or wrong way to recap our sounds.  Don’t worry if they’re finding this challenging, they are building up their experiences (as are you) and may simply not be ready for this yet.  This is an introduction to the sounds.  Children are expected to have an awareness of sounds and are beginning to make connections with letters.   Persevere, keep dipping in and out of the activities and remember to have fun!

Until next time, do good looking for adventures, clean your ears out for good listening and turn your noggins (brains) on for good learning.

Take care and stay safe, 

The Nursery & Reception Team
