This is our last week of practising words which have split digraphs.  The last ‘e’ in the words isn’t a sound that we say, but it works with another letter to make the sound; for example, hop (with a short ‘o’ sound) to hope (with a longer ‘oh’ sound).

These will be tested on Friday 02 March.

hole
stone
pole
joke
stole
home
note
hope

It’s the holidays…

…so there are no spellings or homework activities.

Instead, enjoy a winter walk, the marvellous Muppets movie, some cool culture at a gallery or museum… Enjoy the half-term break.

These will be tested on Friday 10 February.

Like last week, we’re practising words which have split diagraphs.  The last ‘e’ in the words isn’t a sound that we say, but it works with another letter to change, for example, slim (with a short ‘i’ sound) to slime (with a longer ‘i’ sound).

These will be tested on Friday 03 February.

cake
smile
mile
bake
made
pine
slime
lake

This week, we’re learning to spell words with the split diagraph ‘i-e‘.  This changes a short ‘i’ sound (as in ‘Tim’ and ‘rid’) to a longer ‘i’ sound (as in ‘time’ and ‘ride’).

time
bike
like
smile
ride
dive
slide
line

These words will be tested on Friday 27 January 2012.

What is s split digraph?

A split diagraph is an English term under the study of phonetics. It describes a letter that splits during pronunciation. An example is ‘a-e’ which is used in words such as make and take.

Split digraphs are sometimes known as ‘magic e’ words; however, our children will refer to these sounds as split diagraphs.

We’ll be spending the next few weeks learning all about these sounds.

cake
make
late
made
sale
mate
gate
snake

These words will be tested on Friday 20 January.
