Letters & Sounds

Miss F's Phonics Group: 


This week we are learning a new sound: ai. This sound is a diagraph which means it’s one sound made by putting two letters together.


Today’s activity is to watch this video and join in with the sounding out of each word. Once you have done this, watch it again but with the sound on mute. Can you sound out and read each word?

If you would like a challenge, play the game below called Dragons Den. Select Phase 3 from the menu and then select the diagraph ai. Have fun!

Mrs Haylor's Phonics Group:


We are learning a new grapheme ey.
