Thursday Phonics


Welcome to Thursday's phonics session. 

First, go through the sounds and names on the sound mat below then have a go at reading the captions and finding the picture that matches the caption.

Now watch the phonics videos below so we can learn our new sound today.

It is another digraph, can you remember what digraph means?

Jolly Phonics /oi/ - Sound, Song, Vocabulary and Blending

A comprehensive look at the /oi/ sound.This is to compliment the Jolly Phonics programme used by many schools around the world.

Geraldine the Giraffe learns /oi/

Watch UK school teacher Mr Thorne and Youtube sensation Geraldine the Giraffe take you on a learning journey through the world of phonics, grammar, spelling ...

Can you find the 'oi' sound in these words? Can you write them down and add the sound buttons?


Activity- Now play ‘Phonics Hop Scotch’.  Ask an adult to write the sound ‘oi’ on a piece of paper or card.  On another, write ‘ar’ and another ‘ow’.  On another piece of paper or card ‘ur’ and another ‘ee’.  Put these out as a hop scotch grid (see below).  Throw something onto your ‘hop scotch grid’ (e.g. a ball of socks, beanbag, hair scrunchy).  Then you need to hop scotch to the sound it has landed on.  Say each sound you hop scotch over. 


You could play again but using words containing the sounds.

Here are some suggested words for this game-

oi: boil, coil, point

ar: march, car, farm

ow: town, now, clown

ur: turn, burn, hurt

ee: teeth, meet, feel

Activity- If you prefer, you could have a go at the worksheet today.
