Kirkhill Primary School

Phonics FUN!

Last week we were making sure we could all remember our sounds and learned two new sounds ‘ai’ and ‘sh’.  Ask your child to tell you a word that has these sounds in it and leave a comment with the word/s they can remember. Below you’ll find two songs to help your child remember these new sounds – enjoy singing along!

We also read two great books, The Snail and the Whale and There’s a Shark in the Park.  We all had great fun reading along and creating a super display with snails and sharks!
