Jolly Phonics Cursive Rhymes

Jolly Phonics Cursive Rhymes

Homemade unjoined cursive formation rhymes that link with corresponding Jolly Phonics song. This supports the teaching of early cursive formation in Reception/Year 1 alongside existing phonics scheme. The file provides PDF posters of all rhymes from A-Z with pictures. (please note, F does not link to ‘floating fish’ but instead a mermaid to stick with the sea theme) For example: d = "Whoosh in, around the drum and raise the stick, down it goes with a flick" e = “Whoosh in, lift up the top and scoop out the egg”

Leaf Picture Writing Frame, KS1-Y3, guided with Lesson Plan

Leaf Picture Writing Frame, KS1-Y3, guided with Lesson Plan

Children love the freedom of jotting down their leaf ideas all over a picture of one! This fun, relaxed writing stimulant will inspire everyone to have a go, especially with a relaxed, free-and-easy atmosphere, and some preliminary exploration and discussion of real leaves. Also an ideal way to help children connect with nature and seasons. The lesson plan involves going outside to look at trees and leaves, promoting physical wellbeing, too.

Phonics fun racing board game. Year 1 EYFS Early reading au oi  ear ea & ar sounds Key Stage 1

Phonics fun racing board game. Year 1 EYFS Early reading au oi ear ea & ar sounds Key Stage 1

This resource includes 5 game boards and the sounds au, oi, ear /ur pronunciation of ear, ar and ea. There is a mixture of nonsense and real words on each board. For best results print A3! I have asked children to select their playing piece from a basket of cars and used a large foam die! just to add a twist and gimmick to it. I have used these with a class of 20 plus but found they are great for use in interventions and 1:2:1 teaching. Each board takes roughly 20 mins to play with 3 players. In the past I’ve held small competitions to see who won overall. Hope your class love this game! Thanks
