Phonics

Below are the phase 3 digraphs from the first week of isolation (ch, sh, th, ng).  You can watch the videos and practise these digraphs to recap anytime you like! 

Jolly Phonics /ng/ - Sound, Song, Vocabulary and Blending

Thursday's digraph is 'ng'! This is a funny one as you can just about hear both individual phonemes, 'n' and 'g'! The action is to make the 'ng' sound like a weight-lifter as you lift an imaginary bar weight above your head! Have a try!

Have a look around your house for some items with 'ng' in! Can you write them down and make a list? Can you write some words that rhyme with the item you find?

Jolly Phonics /th/ - Sound, Song, Vocabulary and Blending

Our digraph for Wednesday is 'th'! Watch the video below! You can have a soft 'th' like in 'thin' and a harder 'th' sound as in 'this' and 'that'. For this action, you stick your tongue out between your teeth! Have a go!
