A simple game whereby pupils need to look at an object and then select the correct initial sound.
Covers the sounds j, z, x, v, y, qu, w.

How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: Reading

Strand unit: Competence and Confidence in Using Language

Suggestions for use: Use this game after having taught the following phonemes: j, z, x, y, v, w, qu to reinforce teaching and learning objectives. Can be used as an informal assessment tool: teacher can record pupil responses whilst playing the game with the full class. As the game is self-correcting, pupils can play it independently. It could therefore be played during station teaching, e.g. using iPads/tablets or laptops during literacy hour.
