Perfect to play on your interactive whiteboard, this PowerPoint displays all the tricky words from groups 1-5, with a simple, interactive animation. Each of the 79 tricky words are played through. The animation allows the children enough time to read the word on the screen before the next one appears.
As well as this, we have some exciting plans lined up for the August schedule for SPEAK Phonics. The team are extremely hard at work on these and we cannot wait to be able to show you them!
