Our sound for today is… nk


You are working so hard on your special friends sounds, I am so proud of you all for giving them a go. We need to see a sound around fifty times before we really begin to remember it so please do not worry if you don’t remember the sound first time. Practise makes perfect!


I have recorded you a speed sounds lesson for our new sound again today. The video involves practising our new sound, practising the sounds we know well, writing our sound, reading our words with ‘nk’ and spelling with them too. As always, please feel free to pause the video at any point to practise your handwriting and spellings. You can either choose to log onto our Google Classroom page to watch the video I have recorded for you, or you might prefer to use the link below to continue learning your sounds with Ruth on the Ruth Miskin YouTube channel.  

Once you have learnt your new sound 'nk', you might like to go on a hunt around the house for things that have this sound in. Geraldine has had a look around her house for items containing the sound 'nk'. Take a look what she has found.

As always, the video that I have uploaded to our classroom page includes the handwriting demonstration for our new sound 'nk' too. Take a look and then practise forming 'nk' in any way you choose yes.


We practised reading our word time words, and a few words with our new sound ‘nk’ in, on the video today. Now is your chance to do some independent reading and show your adults how good you are! Everyone prefers to read different materials, some prefer comics, some prefer books, some prefer reading words through games. There is no right or wrong way. Simply, take your pick from the list of options below or any other reading materials you have at home. Enjoy!  


On our Google Classroom page I have uploaded today’s writing video. Today I will read the short story of ‘Sun Hat Fun’ before we hold a sentence from the story.



If you find holding a sentence a little tricky at this point, please do not worry. If you would like to spell some words from our story instead then that is brilliant too. Ask an adult nicely to read a word from the list below. Can you pinch the sounds onto your fingers and then write it down?
