Remember that learning phonics REALLY helps with reading, so keep checking you know all of the Phase 2-5 tricky words which are right at the bottom of this page. If you can read them easily see if you can spell them all correctly.

Good luck and have a great week!

This week we are going to be revisiting two digraphs that make the same sound – oi and oy (coin, boy, toy, oyster, boiling, spoil, enjoy, foil, poison, royal)

Watch the two Number Blocks clips below to help you revise these digraphs, then have a go at each of the activities.



Activity 1

Can you make a grid of oy and oi words just like I have below? How many you can think of with each digraph? I hope that you can think up more than me! Can you say each word in a sentence out loud to ensure you understand what each word means?









Activity 2

Read these sentences with an adult and then see if you can you copy them out in your neatest handwriting and highlight all of the oi and oy words?


The boy laughed because he thought the oyster had poison in it.

Do many royals enjoy going to work?

Will it spoil a toy mouse if you boil it in oil?

Can you make up one sentence of your own using one oi and one oy word?

Activity 3. Can you spot all of the oi words?

Activity 4. Can you spot all of the oy words?

Boil the Toy song -to recognise oi and oy digraphs

Can you read and write all of these tricky words?
