To warm your brains up - practise the sounds below. It is good to do this everyday as it helps them to enter your long term memory. Don't forget the actions!
Today, we are going to be looking at how the in some words the "c" sound is a hard "c" and in others it is a soft "c". Take a look at the video below and Mr Thorne will explain to you exactly what this means.

Soft C - Mr Thorne Does Phonics

Watch UK school teacher Mr Thorne and Youtube sensation Geraldine the Giraffe take you on a learning journey through the world of phonics, grammar, spelling ...

Now, your mission is to sort these words into "hard c" and "soft c":

  • Cat
  • Ice
  • Cotton
  • Celebrate
  • Colossal
  • Celery


Once you have sorted these into hard and soft c, have a go at putting each one into a sentence. Try and make your sentence as exciting as possible e.g. instead of "I eat celery." you could have "Yesterday, I ate the most delicious piece of celery I have ever had!"


Enjoy :)
