Spelling - Diagraphs (gh, ph and f)
The spelling lesson focuses on the digraphs gh and ph used as an ?f?.
• The children will understand the use of a digraph.
The children will practice spelling words using the letter f and the digraphs ph and gh.
Sometimes English spelling can be very strange! Take the letter ?f? for example. We all know what ?f? sounds like. It works very well in words like fish, food, fat and fast. Yet we use two other ways to spell the same sound. These are the consonant digraphs: ?gh? and ?ph?. A diagraph is two letters which are used together to make one sound.
