Letters and Sounds

Today we are going to start our Letters and Sounds session with this new alphabet song:

The sound that we are learning today is the digraph qu. Remember that a digraph is two letters that make one sound. Watch this Alphablocks video to learn how to say the sound:

Can you write and draw lots of things that start with a qu? Draw out the digraph qu in the middle of your page and see if you can draw your pictures all around it. You could have a go at writing the letters qu, qu words or sentences with qu words in. 

(Choose which is most appropriate for your child. Also, your child just needs to write the sounds that they can hear in a word, so don't worry if they are spelling words incorrectly. It's important that they use their phonic skills to sound out longer words).
