This week’s spellings are a list of words to learn based on our phonics.
Group 1 – focusing on two trigraphs. A trigraph is three letters making one sound, like ‘ear’ – I have two ears and ‘air’ – I have a pair of socks.
hair, stairs, pair, year, near, beard
Group 2 – focusing on our split digraphs. A ‘split digraph’ is simply a long vowel sound that has been split. For example, in ‘make’ the long ‘ay’ sound is made by the ‘a_e’ – the two letters have been split. (You might remember how this used to be referred to: ‘magic e’. That term is no longer used as it may be confusing. The ‘e’ is not magic – it’s doing a job.)
make, came, made, even, these, like, bike, bone, those, use
path, bath, hour, move, prove, improve, because, want, was, when
