Learning Objective: We are learning the letter sound ‘o’. 

 

Monday 12th July 

Introduce the letter sound ‘o’. Show children the letter and sing this song to the tune of Old Macdonald had a farm. 

 

Now it’s dark the lights go on 

 o-o-o-o-o 

Time for bed the lights go off 

o-o-o-o-o 

 

Have some objects or pictures in front of your child that begin with the letter sound ‘o’. ‘o..o..orange’, ‘o..o..ox’, ‘o..o..octopus’, ‘o..o..ostrich’ etc. Can your child listen to you say “o..o..orange” and then have a go themselves? Repeat with other objects starting with the letter sound ‘o’.  

Make sure you say the sound of the letter as it would be in a word and not the name of the letter as it is in the alphabet. So “o for orange” not “O for open”. 

  

 

Tuesday 13th July

Go on a letter hunt and take a picture of words you find with the letter ‘n’.  E.g. In newspapers, magazines, books, letters, on food labels and packaging etc. Put all the photographs on Tapestry for us to see what you found. 

You could cut out the letters and words you find in old newspapers, magazines or junk mail and stick them on a piece of paper to make a sound book with the other letters you have learnt. If you have a printer at home you could print the photos from your letter hunt out and stick them in your sound book.
