Split-digraph week! Today was a-e.

Good evening parents!

I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine and the long days. This week is split-digraph week in Year 1. For those who aren’t in the know, a split-digraph is a sound made up of two letters that are separated by the sound that comes after. For example in the words cake and bake, the a-e is separated by ‘k’ in both words, but it still makes the ‘a’ vowel sound.

Today, we focused on ‘a-e’. We read a story about Jake and his mate who bake a cake. We found all the split-digraphs in the story, coloured them, and then used them as ingredients for our cake picture afterwards (which should have been taken home).

I have asked the class if they can bring in a picture of them with cake (no pressure) and we can display these to help us remember this tricky sound!
