This term, we will be starting our Phase 3 phonics learning. We will start to introduce diagraphs (2 letters that make 1 sound) and trigraphs (3 letters that make 1 sound). Then, we will be reading and writing words that contain these diagraphs and trigraphs.
The phonemes, diagraphs and trigraphs that we will be learning are:
j v w x y z zz
qu ch sh th
ng ai ee igh
oa oo ar or
ur ow oi er
ear air ure
We will also be learning to read and write Phase 3 tricky words. These are the words that we cannot sound out. Our tricky words are:
he she we my was me be they all you are
Children will receive a sheet with the new sounds on each week to add to their phonics pack. Please continue to support your child at home with their phonics learning.
Please speak to us if you would like any help with this.
