This week we are focusing on the short 'oo' sound.

When we are leaning about the 'oo' sound we split it into 2 types. The short 'oo' like in the words book and look and the long 'oo' sound like in the words moon and food.

We are going to focus on lots of short reading sessions using captions, phrases and sentences and writing and applying the short 'oo' sound.
