Synthetic Phonics - learning the letter sounds with Jolly Phonics Jolly Learning

The sounds are in seven groups. In synthetic phonics some sounds are written with two letters, such as ee and or. These are called digraphs. Note that oo and th can make two different sounds, as in book and moon, that and three. To distinguish between the two sounds, these digraphs are represented in two forms. Each sound has an action which helps children remember the letter(s) that represent it. Children should learn each letter by its sound, not its name. The letters have not been introduced in alphabetical order. Sounds that have more than one way of being written are initially taught in one form only.
