My nephew is called Drew.
What can you do if you find a screw in your stew?

Mrs Willis' Phonics Group:
Today we are going to revisit last week’s work on the alternative spellings for the /ai/ phoneme.
Play the game Flashcards to practise reading graphemes that have been learned in earlier phases (including new ones from Phase 5a). Flashcards: Speed Trial, Flashcards: Time Challenge.
What is the best bet when spelling words with the /ai/phoneme?
Play Quickwrite: Get your grown up to test you on the reading and spelling of these words:
make, clay, snail, eight, grey, date, tray
Think about the phonemes that you can distinguish easily first. Then think carefully about the tricky part of the word (the /ai/ phoneme).
Practise reading these sentences.
