You will be amazed at how clever your children are – ask them what a diagraph is!
We are learning about diagraphs in our sounds work this term. A diagraph is ONE sound made by TWO letters (ai, oa, ie, ee….)
When we are learning about diagraphs, we need to look at the two letters as one sound. To help us do this, we join them together when we are writing.

When we are reading words with diagraphs, we need to think of the diagraph as ONE sound.

E.g. the word rain has 3 sounds – r…ai…n

Hailey has an ai sound in her name, so she has been working hard to join the sound when she is writing!
