Phonics – Read Write Inc Picture Recognition –Today the new picture card is ‘snake’.



Using the picture card on the website to show the children the picture and name it (SNAKE). Using MTYT (My Turn, Your Turn) get the children to copy the name of the picture.

Recap the previous pictures (which are below) and use them as flashcards to get the children naming the pictures without hesitation.


Phonics – Fred Talk Games – Alongside our picture card recognition we have started in school we start playing Fred Talk Games Fred with children in Nursery. Fred the Frog can only speak in sounds though, for example he can say c-a-t. 

All Fred Talk games need to follow these steps:

1. Say the word in sounds. Ask children to repeat.

2. Say the word in sounds and then the whole word. Ask children to repeat.

Today’s Fred Talk Game – Fred the Frog is going to a Farm - Fred names the animals he sees and your child needs to identify the sound they make and name the animal. – The animals are c-a-t, d-o-g, h-e-n

1. Say ‘Fred has seen a ‘h-e-n’.

2. Ask children to say ‘h-e-n’. Pause to see if they can blend and point to the item.

Below is an example of Fred Talk to help you with the game.
