Spelling with ‘Special Friends’

posted in: Year 1 Blog | 0

Miss Coleman and Miss Deedigan’s phonics group have been learning how to read and write with ‘Special Friends’.

‘Special Friends’ are letters that go together to make a sound. Sometimes 2 letters make a sound like in play and sometimes it can be 3 or 4 letters that go together to make a sound like in might. Children are encouraged to find their ‘Special Friend’ first when reading new words.

This group were set a challenge to see how many ‘ay’ and ‘ee’ words they could spell correctly in 10 minutes and look how well they did!
