Mrs Loxton's Group & Mrs R-P's Groups

Start your session today by reading through the tricky words that you have been learning.

Today we are going to move on and look at the alternative pronunciations for the grapheme ch.

Read these words and think about what sound the ch is making in each one.

chips   school  machine

That's right.  In chips it makes the ch sound that you would expect it to make.  In school it makes a c sound and in machine it makes a sh sound.  

Now have a go at reading these words.  Is the ch making a ch, a c or a sh sound;

chalet  chin  echo  

church  chef  chemist

If you have a printer you may prefer to read and sort these ch words off line.
