Church of England Primary School

Small school, big hearts. Wise, Responsible and Kind like the Good Samaritan.

Last week in school we spent time reading sentences together and we need to keep practicing how to use all of our phonics skills to do this.


By now Big Acorns should be reading more and more words by sight (without having to sound out and blend to read every word). This means that the children will become more fluent and confident with their reading. 

We are going to use all of our phonics skills to build and read different sentences. You will need to remember:


  • all the phonics sounds that you have learnt

  • to sound out and blend to read each word in the sentence carefully

  • to hold the sentence in your head and decide if it is a silly sentence or not.  


Using the documents below, build and read your own sentences. They can be as silly as you like! You could even see if you can make a story up, adding your own words to the sentences. 


All of the Big Acorn children should be able to read all of Phase 2 cards, the Phase 3 cards might be a little more challenging.
