Today we will be practicing writing our 'ir' sound in words. Have a watch of the video below and see if you can join in reading the words.

             Questions to be asked to the child:

  • What sound did we look at yesterday?
  • Revisit what sound does ‘ir’ make? (Remind children that it is a digraph and what does this mean?)
  • Explain to children today they are going to write words with the sound ‘ir’ in it.
  • Model words – Girl, bird, skirt, first.
  • Children to complete the attached worksheet. The worksheet attached will include some words that do not have the ‘ir’ sound. Children need to say the word of the picture and identify whether it contains the ‘ir’ sound.

Children to write the sentence. Adult to model first.

 e.g.: a. Girl in the skirt. b. Thirsty bird came first to drink water.
