Start your session by using the cards above (if needed) and writing down all the ways you know how to make the long ee sound (e, ee, ea, ey, e-e, y).
Next write down all the ways you know how to make the long ai sound (a, ai, ay, a-e)
Finally write down all the ways you know how to make the long igh sound (i, igh, ie, i-e, y)
Now practice reading these long ee words. Can you work out which letters are making the long ee sound?

Play word sort to revise these long ee spellings.
We'll finish our session by looking at words that end with a v sound.
English words hardly ever end with the letter v, so if a word ends with a /v/ sound, the letter e usually needs to be added after the ‘v’. Here are three examples. Try to learn to spell these words. We'll look at them again tomorrow. (None of these words have 'split digraphs')
