Phonics

Here you will find Phonics home learning activities and resources for the week. Scroll down to see activities for each day from Monday to Friday.

Learning Objective: We are learning the sound ‘a’. 

 

Monday 18th January

Introduce the letter sound ‘a’.  Have some objects in front of your child that begin with the letter sound ‘a’. ‘a..a..apple’, ‘a..a..ant’, ‘a..a..ambulance’, ‘a..a..arrow’ etc. Can your child listen to you say “a..a..apple” and then have a go themselves? Repeat with other objects starting with the letter sound ‘a’. See pictures below.  

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 “a for apple” not “A”. 

 

Tuesday 19th January

Show your child the letter ‘a’ and ask them if they can remember what sound it makes. Can your child have a go at finding objects around their home that begin with the letter sound ‘a’. E.g. apple, arrow, ant, apricot etc. 

 

Wednesday 20th January 

Watch this video with your child and say the ‘a’ sound together. We’re not expecting the children to read words at this stage but it is good for them to practise saying the sound at the start of each word.

Nursery Rhymes Where Counting Goes Down 

 

Five Little Ducks  

Five little ducks went swimming one day. 
Over the hills and far away. 
Mother Duck Said Quack Quack Quack Quack! 
But only four little ducks came back! 
 
Four little ducks went swimming one day. 
Over the hills and far away. 
Mother Duck Said Quack Quack Quack Quack! 
But only three little ducks came back! 
 
Three little ducks went swimming one day. 
Over the hills and far away. 
Mother Duck Said Quack Quack Quack Quack! 
But only two little ducks came back! 

 

Two little ducks went swimming one day. 
Over the hills and far away. 
Mother Duck Said Quack Quack Quack Quack! 
But only one little duck came back! 
 
One little duck went swimming one day. 
Over the hills and far away. 
Mother Duck Said Quack Quack Quack Quack! 
But only no little ducks came back! 
 
No little ducks went swimming one day. 
Over the hills and far away. 
Mother Duck Said Quack Quack Quack Quack! 
And all five little ducks came back!  

 

 

Five Little Monkeys  

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed, 
one fell off and banged his head! 
Mamma called the doctor and the doctor said 
"NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED!" 
 
Four little monkeys jumping on the bed, 
one fell off and banged his head! 
Mamma called the doctor and the doctor said 
"NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED!" 
 
Three little monkeys jumping on the bed, 
one fell off and banged his head! 
Mamma called the doctor and the doctor said 
"NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED!". 
 
Two little monkeys jumping on the bed, 
one fell off and banged his head! 
Mamma called the doctor and the doctor said 
"NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED!".  
 
One little monkey jumping on the bed, 
she fell off and banged her head! 
Mamma called the doctor and the doctor said 
"NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED!". 

 

 

Five Current Buns 

(instead of singing ‘along came a bog, you could change this for your child’s name. E.g. ‘along came Sarah with a penny one day) 

 

Five currant buns in a baker's shop. 
Big and round with a cherry on the top, 
Along came a boy with a penny one day, 
Bought a currant bun and he took it away. 
 
Four currant buns in a baker's shop. 
Big and round with cherries on the top, 
Along came a boy with a penny one day, 
Bought a currant bun and took it away. 

Three currant buns in a baker's shop. 
Big and round with a cherry on the top, 
Along came a boy with a penny one day, 
Bought a currant bun and he took it away. 
 
Two currant buns in a baker's shop. 
Big and round with cherries on the top, 
Along came a boy with a penny one day, 
Bought a currant bun and took it away. 

 

One currant bun in a baker's shop. 
Big and round with a cherry on the top, 
Along came a boy with a penny one day, 
Bought the currant bun and he took it away. 
No currant buns in a baker's shop. 
But don't worry…the bakers' got some more! 

 

 

Friday 22nd January  

Repeat the maths activity you did on Monday where you added and took away objects from a plate. This time ask your child to take some away and say what is happening e.g. “I am taking some away. There are less cars now.” “I am adding some. There are more cars now.”
