Hello! Today let's start with a quick recap of the sounds we have learnt so far. As your grown up points to graphemes on the sound mats below randomly, can you say the sound that they each make?
How quickly can you read the phase 2 and 3 tricky words? Can you time yourself as you read them? Then keep a note of your time and next time you can try and beat it!

Today we are going to learn a new digraph. Remember that a digraph is two letter together that make one sound. The digraph we are learning today is




We most often find the ur digraph in the middle of words like


turf         hurt        turn


Watch the YouTube video below and learn about the ur digraph with Geraldine the Giraffe!

We are going to practice and apply our new ur digraph in our writing today so please get your exercise book and a pencil. Firstly, can you practice writing the ur digraph in your book, remembering to leave finger spaces in between each one. Like this:


ur     ur      ur     ur     ur     ur     ur     ur     ur     


Good job! Your grown up will tell you what you need to do next.


Grown ups, please begin by asking your child to segment and write the following words:






When they have done those, please ask them to write the sentence:

I hurt my foot.

Say the sentence to them several times then ask them to repeat it back to you, to make sure they have held the sentence in their head before they start writing.
