Today we would like you to start by recapping on all of the sounds covered so far - s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, f, l, ll, ss, j, v, w, x, y, z, qu, sh + ch. You could use the flashcard resources or make some of your own.
Today we will be learning a new digraph (two letters which make one sound) - th. Please note that 'th' makes two sounds, both a short and a long sound - th/th. Examples of words which contain the short sound are that or them. These words contain the long sound - three or bath. You could use the link below and click on the 'th/th' to hear both sounds. Please see the resource sheet in the homework section for the action and picture clues.
Next you could have a go at writing some words containing this sound. If an adult says each word see if you can robot talk it and write down the sounds that you hear in order. Don't worry if you do not hear all of the sounds, just write down the ones that you do hear in order. See if you can join any digraphs.
Sample words - them, then, that, this, with, thin, thick, chop, such, shock, bash.
Finally you could have a go at playing the yes no game. See if you can read some of the sentences attached below and sort them. Remember to circle the tricky words and add sound buttons to help you spot the digraphs before reading. Have fun!
