We are looking at the 'i-e' sound today.
'i-e' is a split digraph which means that the i and the e work together to make one sound. However they are split up by another letter, and so they don't sit next to each other. The dash in 'i-e' stands for the other letter which is splitting the digraph. Click on the picture below to join in with the lesson.
Practice the 'i-e' phoneme by playing an active game! On pieces of paper or card write down a selection of words from the video with the 'i-e' phoneme in them (write them nice and big). Place them carefully on your stairs so that you can read the words. Ask an adult at home to call out one of the words. As you find it, read it and then throw a bean bag (or a rolled up pair of socks would work well) at the word your adult has called out. Repeat until all of the words are knocked over. There is a picture below to show you how it could be set up.
If you do not have stairs in your home, you could fold the pieces of paper/card with the word on in half and set them up on the floor to either knock over or maybe jump over them as they're called out to you.
