This week's phonics sound is 't'. Watch Mr Thorne's video and see what he and Geraldine giraffe are up to. Then have a go at some of the phonics activities.
ACTIVITY 1 - WHAT AM I?
Think of an animal or an object starting with T. Describe it to someone in your family. Can they guess what it is?
ACTIVITY 2 - SOUND HUNT/I SPY
Go on a sound hunt or play I Spy around your house, garden or neighbourhood. What can you see that starts with the letter 't'. Was it more or less things than the letter 'a' hunt?
ACTIVITY 3 - MIRROR MIRROR
Practise saying 't' in front of the mirror. Watch how your tongue reaches to the top of your mouth. See if you can say this tongue twister into the mirror without giggling....Tommy tiger tickles a tomato!
Can you make up your own silly 't' sentence and say it into the mirror?
ACTIVITY 4 - WRITING 'T'
