Matty: Reception – Sample 6

Phase three and four application

Application of synthetic phonic knowledge and skills

Matty’s writing contains the correct spelling of the following high-frequency words: ‘me’, ‘you’, ‘the’ and ‘said’. The consonant–vowel–consonant (CVC) words ‘pig’ and ‘let’ are also represented correctly. In his writing, Matty makes phonemically plausible attempts at some more complex words: ‘impossible’ shown as ‘inposibul’, ‘wolf’ as ‘wulf’ and ‘clever’ as ‘clev’. He has also spelt the words ‘little’ and ‘house’ correctly.

Interpretation

Little pig, little pig let me in your house. You are impossible. Let me in your house, said the wolf. You are too clever. One day I’ll be as clever as you. One pig built a strong house.

Child’s voice

It’s the little pigs’ story. The wolf was scary and he has really, really, really sharp claws. He wants to try and eat the little pigs. He falls in a hot bucket of water and then he was never seen again.
