Write the word he on a whiteboard or piece of paper. Check that the children can read it. Say a sentence using the word. Soundtalk the word, raising a finger for each phoneme. Ask children to do the same. Discuss the letters required for each phoneme, using letter names. Ask children to trace the shapes of the letters with their fingers. Rub the word off the whiteboard and ask the children to write the word on their own whiteboards. Repeat with she, we, me be. I would then like the children to choose 2 of the words and put them into a sentence they have thought of independently. 


Read a sentence. Ask children to write the sentence on whiteboards. If any children find writing very difficult then they could create the sentence from magnetic letters. Encourage children to soundtalk words. Ask children to check each letter and tick all the ones they have got right. Encourage them to correct any mistakes.
