Phonics board linked to RWI. Children look at the picture say the word then use the letters to help sound out the word. I start this with just asking for the initial sound of a word (the other letters are already there) then build up to initial and end, then finally the whole word.
Building words activity. The different sounds are on separate bricks. The children have to listen carefully to the different sounds in each word and find the right grapheme. They can then press the sound buttons on the top of the mega blocks and blend the sounds to read the words they have built. A great phonic activity for early years which can be extended for more complex sounds.
Blair ' Paddy ' Mayne. No British soldier in the Second World War was more decorated than Robert Blair Mayne – one of the six founder members of the Special Air Service (SAS). Blair Mayne (known inevitably as Paddy) was an exceptional Ulsterman, endowed with great physical strength, stature and uniquely swift reflexes, which he used with devastating effect – in the boxing ring, on the international rugby field, in the bars of Belfast and later in battle.
