Arrrrr…..Shiver me timbers! This week’s Grade 1 phonics rule is ‘ar’, which just so happens to be a pirate’s favourite rule! The Grade 1’s became pirates for the morning and went on a treasure hunt around the room looking for ‘ar’ gold coins. They completed their ‘ar’ “treasure maps” and then some friends also wrote some sentences with ‘ar’ words. What a fun way to practise our phonics rule. Arrrrr, mateys!
