We'll be having a couple of choices for phonics from now on! 

If you think you're ready for more of a challenge, you also have the option of looking at our next phonics phase, phase 3! We'll be moving onto Phase 3 once we're all back in school, so anything that you cover will be covered again with the whole class.

Please only choose this option if you are confident with reading and writing all the sounds in Phase 2;

Watch this video for the tricky word of the day:

Tricky words - no

Join me in sounding out and saying our tricky word!



yes Can you write the tricky word in flour, rice or custard? Maybe you might like to write it in bubbles in the bath, or chalk? I wonder who can be the most creative!

yes Say our tricky word in a sentence! If you feel up to a challenge, can you write your tricky word in a short sentence or caption?
