To revise your sounds today, have a go at playing "Obb and Bob". Make sure you select all Phase Five sounds. Have fun!
Today we will be focusing on the "ow" and "ou" digraphs, Notice how they both make the same sound but are spelt differently. Have a look at the video below for some examples:

ou for the /ow/ sound - Mr Thorne Does Phonics

Watch UK school teacher Mr Thorne and Youtube sensation Geraldine the Giraffe take you on a learning journey through the world of phonics, grammar, spelling ...

Now print out the poster and the cards below and see if you can sort the words out into "ou" words and "ow" words.

You may have noticed that when the "ow" digraph is used, it is usually at the end of a word. When the "ou" digraph is used, it usually comes in the middle of the word.

Now choose at least three of those words and put them into an exciting sentence.
