Matty: Year 1 – Sample 7

Matty wrote captions to three photographs of space. This is an annotated sample of his work, demonstrating his application of independent phonic knowledge and skills in the first half of the autumn term in Year 1.

The sun is shining on the space man.
The space ship is redee to blast off.
The erth is in space. The moon is in space.

The sun is shining on the space man. The space ship is redee to blast off. The erth is in space. The moon is in space.

Phase four application

Application of synthetic phonic knowledge and skills

There is evidence of high-frequency words ‘the’, ‘to’ and ‘in’. Also evident is the phase four consonant–consonant–vowel–consonant–consonant (CCVCC) word ‘blast’. Beyond this the ‘oo’ phoneme is correct in the word ‘moon’ and there is a phonemically plausible attempt at the word ‘ready’ shown as ‘redee’. The adjacent consonants ‘sp’ are also shown in the word ‘space’, which also includes the accurate representation of the phase five split-vowel digraph ‘a-e’.

Interpretation

The sun is shining on the space man.

The spaceship is ready to blast off.

The earth is in space. The moon is in space.

Child’s voice

I had to write a caption for the photographs. A caption is a little sentence. They were quite good, because they were about space.
