We have learned a trigraph (three letters that make one sound) as well as a digraph this week.
igh as in light – no action
ai as in rain – hold back of your ear as if you can’t hear and say ai
It really does make a difference if your child practises their sound box at home, particularly as they are now learning lots of digraphs and need to work on applying them to their reading and writing. You can also practise spelling their tricky words, as well as reading them.
