development as reader, writers and speakers;

simple songs, playing alliteration and rhyming games,

listening and describing sounds.

The main aim is to consolidate children’s

knowledge and to help them learn to

read and spell words which have

adjacent consonants, such as trap,

string, and milk.

ay as in day and a_e as in make.

eg tin – wild dog – cold
