Caption Clips

One minute videos to get you writing.

Made for EYFS and Year 1.
No more hunting for photos to teach the Letters & Sounds 'Captions' activity.

Watch the video clip.

Turn to your partner and talk about what you can see.

Decide on a caption, (adults please press on the eye to check).

Say the phrase 3 times.

Write the caption on drywipes.

Then mark it together.

There's a help video here if you want to see more detail.

Have fun!

Phase 3, L&S Vowel Graphemes:
(Captions not from L&S)

I made up these captions as none exist in Letters and Sounds for this purpose. Apologies if they are strange. It was a tricky to balance things children would recognise with things that used age-appropriate graphemes.
  • ch  -chicken and chips
  • sh  -rush to the shops
  • th  -think of three things in the bath
  • ng  -a king with wings
  • ai  -a snail on a train
  • ee  -a tree with knees
  • igh  -a bright light in the night
  • oa  -a toad with her soap
  • oo  -look at a good book
  • oo  -a spoon on the moon
  • ar  -a car park at the market
  • or  -a stork with a fork
  • ur  -turn it or it will burn
  • ow  -a cow with a crown
  • oi  -a coin in the soil
  • ear  -a tear in my beard
  • air  -a pair of chairs
  • er  -a letter on a ladder
I didn't make one for 'ure' as I couldn't think of anything suitable!

If you would like me to make some Phase 4 clips please let me know via email and I'll whizz them off.
