Week Beginning 25.1.21

Monday - Activity 1

This week we will be learning a new sound that is a 'trigraph'. This is 3 letters joined together to make 1 sound. It is the 'igh' sound.

Please listen to and join in with the Jolly Phonics Song up to 09:37 

Work through the PowerPoint completing the tasks and activities on the 'igh' sound

Igh PowerPoint

If you open the Twinkl PowerPoint on a mobile or tablet device the letter font may change. However, if you download PowerPoint on the App store (it is free) this should resolve the issue. Please refer to the teacher video on how to form the letters correctly. The PowerPoint works best if opened on a laptop or computer. Please note that some of the animations work best if opened as a PowerPoint rather than a Google slide.

Tuesday - Activity 2


You will need a piece of paper and a pencil. Watch the video of Mrs Chadwick introducing the ‘igh’ sound. This is a trigraph, which means there are 3 letters that make one sound. We would like you to have a go at writing the ‘igh’ sound using the correct formation that Mrs Chadwick shows you. How many words can you think of that have the ‘igh’ sound in them? Write them down and draw a picture to match the word.

Wednesday - Activity 3

Here is a short story. Read it together and then let your child find the ‘igh’ words. You could circle or highlight them and then write a list of words. Can you find them all?

Look at the pictures and write sentences about these pictures. Use the words given to help you.
