Phonics Phonics Phonics . . . it can be fun!

Today in Miss Gorman's phonics class we were revising the sounds ar, or and ur.

One of our favourite revision games is 'Sort and Find'.

To play you need  to work with a partner and take a pile of words and sort them into 3 sounds. Then Miss Gorman calls out a word and you have to try to find the word before your partner. Once you have the word you have to justify to your partner why it is the right word. Often we do this by sounding out all of the sounds, if we still aren't sure we can add zips and buttons to justify that we are right.

It's a tricky game and you don't always win but it is loads of fun to practice our phonics this way and we share loads of smiles and laughs when we play this game. Check out our smiles below, we know learning can be fun!

You could try playing this game at home and let us know if you like it in the comments below.
