One player chooses a phoneme, writes this at the top of the board and says a word that contains this phoneme. 

For example, they could write ‘ow’ at the top of the board and say ‘ow’ in cow.’ 

Put a time on the clock between 2 and 5 minutes and then race to see how many words each player can write that contain the chosen phoneme. 

When time is up, score a point for every word spelt correctly. 

The player with the most points wins the round. 

The National Curriculum provides a spelling table for each year group. To find out which phonemes your child should know visit file/239784/English_Appendix_1_-_Spelling.pdf
