Phonics and Reading



This week in Phonics we are revisiting consonant clusters. A consonant cluster is when two or more consonants are positioned together. They can appear at the start of a word or the end of a word. 


This is not to be confused with a digraph/trigraph, where the two (or more) letters make one sound. In a consonant cluster, you can hear each of the letter sounds as you say it.


This week we are concentrating on our 'Gang of 3' which are found at the beginning of words. 


1. Practice saying the cluster sound in silly voices to make it memorable.

2. Then have a go at reading the words in the PowerPoint with the cluster.

3. There is a worksheet to complete the cluster and match to the correct picture (if you don't have a printer this can be written into their Home Learning Book and you can draw your own picture to match).

4. Finally there are some sentences to read with contain words with the cluster sound of the day on.
