Welcome to your Wednesday phonics session. We'll start by playing 'quickwrite' so you'll need your literacy book or a white board or chalk board if you have one. Use the cards below to help you;
Use the cards to help you find and write all the graphemes that make a long a sound (you should be able to find 3)
Next write down all the graphemes that make a long i sound, you should be able to find 3 above and don't forget that i on it's own can also make long i sound.
Now write all the graphemes that make a long o sound as in g-oa-t, there are 3 to find and remember we have also just learnt that o on it's own can make a long o sound in words like cold.
Today we are going to learn about the alternative pronunciations of u. It's a tricky one today as u can make three different sounds. Short u in sun, oo in pudding and 'you' in unicorn, music and tuba.
Have a go at reading the words below.
plug hump gust but under
unit music tuba stupid
unicorn pudding full awful
