This week in phonics we are learning the 4 trigraphs (3 letters that make one sound).
1. Show the children the trigraphs below. Say what they are and ask your child to repeat it.
air (as in hair)
ure (as in pure)
igh (as in high)
ear (as in near)
2. Say a trigraph sound. Can your child point to the correct one? Can you race each other to find it?
3. Complete the sheet. The child reads each word with you and guesses which matches the picture. You DO NOT have to do the activity all at once. 20 minutes maximum is enough.
