This week we are learning the ‘air’ and ‘ear’ sound. Please show the children on the phonics strips provided at workshops the pictures that go with each of the new sounds. The action for ‘ear’ is to point to your ear and the action for ‘air’ is to create a cloud shape using both hands. There are games for both new sounds in Education City- Subjects- English-F2- Letters and sounds- Phase 3. Please encourage the children to play these two games along with any others of their choice.
