Your weekly phonics focus is a recap of all the split vowel digraphs.
Remember that a digraph is two letters which together make one sound. When a digraph is split by a consonant it becomes a split digraph. For example, the ‘ue’ in cube makes one sound but it is split by the ‘b’.
Can you remember the 5 vowels in our alphabet?
