  • Question 1

Look at the picture and choose the correct word.

 

pen

CORRECT ANSWER
pen
EDDIE SAYS
The trick here is look at the picture and decide what it is. Once you know what the object is sound it out each of the options. Which option matches the object? Give the next question a try.
  • Question 2

Look at the picture and choose the correct word.

 

glue stick

CORRECT ANSWER
glue
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? Remember look at the picture and then sound out each of the words. It can help to clap each sound as you read it to understand what the word says. Make sure you break the work down into phonemes. Then blend those phonemes together to see if it makes a recognisable word.
  • Question 3

Look at the picture and then choose the correct word.

 

scissors

CORRECT ANSWER
scissors
EDDIE SAYS
Decide what the object is and then sound out the phonemes in that word. Look at the options, which word matches the name of that object. Use your phonics to help read each option. Keep it up super star!
  • Question 4

Look at the picture and then choose the correct word.

 

ruler

CORRECT ANSWER
ruler
EDDIE SAYS
Are you starting to get the hang of this now? The picture is a ruler. Make sure you sound out each option properly. Think about what sounds you expect to hear in that word. You have got this!
  • Question 5

Look at the picture and then choose the correct word.

 

toilet

CORRECT ANSWER
toilet
EDDIE SAYS
Great effort! Did you get it right? You can do this. Use your phonics to break down the words. Which one matches the object in the picture?
  • Question 6

This time, read the word and then choose the correct picture.

 

crayon

CORRECT ANSWER
EDDIE SAYS
How did you get on? Although the question is different you still need to use your phonics to help. Break down the word and sound it out then the same as you did before, which picture matches the word in the question. You are doing the same thing as you have done before just the other way round.
  • Question 7

Read the word and then choose the correct picture.

 

pencil

CORRECT ANSWER
EDDIE SAYS
This can be a tricky word to sound out as the 'c' in 'pencil' makes the 's' sound. But break the word down as much as you can then look at the pictures and decide which one is more likely to be the word in the question. You can do this! Give the next question a try.
  • Question 8

Read the word and then choose the correct picture.

 

rubber

CORRECT ANSWER
EDDIE SAYS
Have you got the hang of this now? Did you use your phonics to help? Nearly there now!
  • Question 9

Read the word and then choose the correct picture.

 

sellotape

CORRECT ANSWER
EDDIE SAYS
Keep sounding out the word in the question. It can help to clap each of the sounds in the word when trying to work out what it says. Keep up the excellent effort.
  • Question 10

Read the word and then choose the correct picture.

 

paper

CORRECT ANSWER
EDDIE SAYS
Did you get it right? When reading words you need to use your phonic knowledge. Break each word up into its smallest unit of sound. Clap the sounds to hear each one. Then blend those sounds together by saying them faster and faster. Hopefully they make a recognisable word and match one of the pictures.
