We'll finish the week with a game.  How many words can you make using only the letters in the word...rhinoceros


Sort the letters into vowels and consonants first.  Then work out what digraphs you can use, for example you have oo, er, ir, oe, ie, i-e, o-e sh, ch.  So to start you off you could make the following words; in, son, chin, soon, nose etc..  What is the longest word you can make?  How many different words can you make in total? What sound is the c making in the word rhinoceros?

Let me know how you get on.
