Letters & Sounds

Miss F's Phonics Group:


Today in Letters and Sounds we are going to have a go at reading sentences in some Julia Donaldson Songbird books. Below you will find some videos of the books. 


Mute the video and see if you can read the sentences. You can press pause on each page to give you enough time. Can you spot lots of the digraphs we have been learning about recently?

This book is more of a challenge so only have a go at this one if the others were too easy:
