Can you label the items in your fridge? Children have a go first using their phonic knowledge- sounding out and writing down each sound they can hear.


Can they challenge themselves to write a caption/sentence about it? E.g. The milk is white.


Don’t worry if it is not the correct spelling, you can then model this after they have had a go. It is important for the children to have a go first and practise their phonic skills.
