Phonics

The letter u on its own can also make the long vowel sound.

Challenge

We are going to review the week by playing an active game. On separate pieces of paper or card, ideally A4 or bigger, write down the grapheme and digraphs we have been learning this week. So 'oo', 'ue', 'ew', 'u-e' and 'u' each on its own piece of paper. Place those pieces of paper on the floor. Ask an adult at home to read out the following words one at a time: moon, threw, blue, ruby, flute, roof, truth, glue, screw, drew, prune, grew, tooth, lute, room, Sue, broom and flu. As your adult calls out the word, you need to try and decide on the correct spelling choice and jump on that piece of paper. 

 

If the weather is ok, you could adapt this game to play outside in your garden. Just place the pieces of paper up around your garden and then run to the spelling choice you think is in the word your adult has called out.
