Phonics

We have been learning the sounds l, c and k/ck this week.  Ask someone at home to cut out the flashcards and use these to help you recognise the sounds.  See if you can teach them the actions we have learnt.  Remember to keep practising the sounds previously taught.

As an extra challenge, see how many words you can make with these sounds as well as the sounds we have previously learnt.
