During these two weeks the children will be learning the new trigraphs (three letter which make one sound) - air and ure. Please note that there are no Jolly Phonics Cartoonito sheets for the trigraphs, so instead we have added an air, ear and ure sorting game for you to print and play at home. The game also includes the phoneme 'er' which we will also be covering this week. As an extension task the children may like to have a go at writing some of the simpler words to match the pictures.


The actions for each of the sounds has been described below:

  • ear - point to your ear
  • air - open both hands out in front of you, with fingers cupped and spread and lift through the air
  • ure - pointy finger out in front as if pointing to another person
  • er - Please see Jolly Phonics Cartoonito Sheet below


Please work on formation of these trigraphs in a joined style, this will be modelled to the children in school.


We will also be learning to read the tricky word -  they


Our focus will be on developing our independence when writing in sentences. You could play the 'Phonics Play' game 'Sentence Substitution', please find the link below.


Have fun!
