The following poem can be read for pure listening pleasure, although children might enjoy dramatising it.

Revise the vowels, introducing the term “vowels” if the learners do not already know it.

Read the story of the foxes. The story can also be used to assess the learners’ ability to apply their phonetic knowledge, as there are many easy 3-letter words. Let them identify the vowels. They can highlight each of the different vowels in different colours

Play “Spot the odd one out”:

Call out five words, e.g. cat, hat, sat, sit, flat. The learners must listen for the odd one out.

Later in the game make it a little more difficult by changing the final letter: man, bat, sin, bad, has. They can also write down their answers. If you are satisfied with their understanding of the role of the vowel in a word and that they are discriminating between the different sounds aurally, progress to the “sixth” vowel.

First read the story of Mary’s Naughty Brothers. Read through first to check for any sight words that your learners may find difficult. Make flashcards of these words and discuss their formation with the learners, e.g. “whole” and “year”. They can read the story to each other as a class reading activity in small groups or with you. Work through the comprehension activity and discuss the title and characters. Let them answer the questions. Encourage them to read what they have written as a form of checking and as general reading practice. The story may also be taken home to reading practice.

Question 5 of the activity may be treated as a separate activity, as much discussion can ensue. Learners “read “ the pictures to determine the situation and then read the words to find a suitable punishment for the deed.

In a later phonic lesson, introduce the “Y” in its role as a vowel. Remind the children of the sound it makes as a consonant. Then point out the two sounds it can make as a vowel: - silly and by.

Little fox

Little fox went out on a chilly night

Prayed to the moon to give him light

He’d many a mile to go that night before he reached the town-oh, town-oh

He’d many a mile to go that night before he reached the town-oh

So the fox he ran ‘til he came to the pen

The ducks and the geese were put there-in

“A couple of you will grease my chin before I leave this town-oh, town-oh

A couple of you will grease my chin before I leave this town-oh.”

Now, old Mrs Flipperflopper jumped out of bed

Opened the window and stuck out her head

Cried “John John the grey goose is gone and the fox is on the town-oh, town-oh

John John the grey goose is gone and the fox is on the town-oh.”

Little fox he ran ‘til he came to his den

And there were his little ones eight nine ten

They said, “Face it Dad, you better go back again ‘cos it must be a mighty fine town-oh, town-oh

Face it Dad, you better go back again ‘cos it must be a mighty fine town-oh.”

LO 1.3
