Phase 5 W/B 15/10/12

This week we have been having another look at the split vowel digraphs 'a_e', 'e_e',' i_e', 'o_e' and 'u_e'.  We have been reading, writing and finding other words in the dictionary which contain these split vowel digraphs.

Please follow the link below to have a look at the videos on the Espresso website:

Can you think of any more words which have these split vowel digraphs in them?

Look what 'WEAVE' been doing!


21st October
