Writing using our phonics


We just wanted to show you what ‘writing phonetically’ looks like. As you can see, not every word is spelt correctly but the examples show that the children have used their phonics to write. So in the first example, the child has tried to write the word rocket. Then the second picture is a teacher example. The third picture is a piece of work that was sent to us over email and it shows the word earth as urrth which is fantastic. Hope this makes sense.
