  • Question 1

Press this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
like
EDDIE SAYS
The trick here is to try and break down the word you can hear. Clapping the sounds in the word as you hear them can help to identify the correct phonemes. 'Like' uses the split digraph i-e. The 'e' in the split digraph changes the vowel sound. If the 'e' was not there would make the phoneme 'i' as in 'ink'. So you must remember the 'e'!
  • Question 2

Press this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
home
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? Again here 'home' has the split digraph o-e. Remember the 'e' changes the 'o' to the vowel sound. Without the 'e' the phoneme would be 'o' as in 'otter', which would not give us the correct phoneme for the word 'home'.
  • Question 3

Press this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
come
EDDIE SAYS
Did you remember? You needed to use the split digraph o-e. Remember you can clap each of the phonemes you hear to try and identify them correctly. Keep up the great effort!
  • Question 4

Press this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
are
EDDIE SAYS
Now this is a tricky word to spell. It does not follow our rules of phonics. The best way to try to remember how it is spelt is to picture how it is spelt and keep practising writing it out. The more you practise writing it the better you will become at remembering the correct spelling.
  • Question 5

Press this:

Type what you can hear.

CORRECT ANSWER
going
EDDIE SAYS
You can do this! Always start with what you know. Break the word down to identify the correct phonemes in the word. The word 'going' has 4 phonemes: g-o-i-ng.
  • Question 6

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear. 

Don't forget to use a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop to finish.

CORRECT ANSWER
I am going home.
EDDIE SAYS
These are the words you have done before, just remember you play the clip over and over. Clap the sounds in any words that you find tricky. Don't forget your capital letters and full stops!
  • Question 7

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear. 

Don't forget to use a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop to finish.

CORRECT ANSWER
I want to play.
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? Keep practising, you can do this.
  • Question 8

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear. 

Don't forget to use a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop to finish.

CORRECT ANSWER
Look at my dad.
EDDIE SAYS
Did you get it right? Don't forget those capital letters and full stops! Use your phonics to sound out the words. You have got this!
  • Question 9

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear. 

Don't forget to use a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop to finish.

CORRECT ANSWER
This dog is big.
EDDIE SAYS
Excellent effort! Did you remember you capital letter at the start of the sentence and your full stop at the end?
  • Question 10

Now listen to this sentence.

Type what you can hear. 

Don't forget to use a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop to finish.

CORRECT ANSWER
It is a school day.
EDDIE SAYS
The tricky word in this sentence is 'school' but you can break it down to identify each phoneme. 'School' has 5 phonemes: s-c-h-oo-l. Great effort.
