We are learning to use our knowledge of word families and blends to work out unknown words and spell words.

One game we play to help us with our reading and writing is 'Pass The Bomb'. We have cards with parts of words, word families (e.g ing) or blends (eg. bl). When the Bomb comes to you you have to say a word that has the letters on the card in it. If the Bomb goes off you have to keep the card. At the end of the game the people who don't have a card are the winner.

E.g. One card had 'bl' on it so we said words like black, blank, blast...

Our next step is to include some of the more challenging cards in the game.
