Think about the names of people you know. Use the names in a game of ‘I Know’ similar to 'I Spy’:
‘I know someone beginning with ‘S’’
Recap the sounds you’ve learnt already. Can you say the sounds ‘s’, ‘a’, ‘t’, ‘p’, ‘i’, ‘n’.

Use word play daily with your child making tongue twisters using alliteration. Use general items and daily activities, for example;
Susan’s sizzling sausages.
David’s dangerous dinosaurs.
For children going to Reception - adults can you write the letters s, a, t, p, i, n and ask your child to look at each letter and say the sound? Do they recognise the letter and remember the sound?

Think of some strange names for alien creatures. The alien names must be a string of non-words with the same initial sounds. For example:
Ping pong poo pop
Mig mog mully me
Maybe draw pictures to go with your strange alien names.

Friday 19th June
Prepare some pictures of objects that make a noise (e.g. animals, steam train, a doorbell, a clock).
Record the children with your phone using their voices to make suitable sounds for simple pictures. Ask them to listen to the recording later and match each sound to a picture.
If you are going to Reception: Think about a couple of words beginning with s/a/t/p/i/n.
