Hi everyone,

I've heard from a few of you that the children are finding reading particularly challenging and/ or that it's hard to spot digraphs and trigraphs within a word. I recommend practising the phonics sounds regularly, even if it's just that they are written down on a sheet of paper and your child points and says each sound. It is so much easier for them to spot the sounds within a word if they are seeing them regularly.

I have recorded a quick message about one technique we use in school to support the children in spotting the digraphs and trigraphs within a word. Please listen to the recording which explains the picture below if you are supporting your child with phonics and reading at home :)
