Jenson’s game of musical letters:

  1. Write all of the digraphs that we have learnt at home so far, onto pieces of paper: th/ee/oa/oo/oo/ar/qu/igh/
  2. Write down some tricky troll words too! You could even draw pictures of shapes or write words with our new digraphs in.
  3. Spread them out on the floor and put on the music!
  4. When the music stops, jump onto a word and read it out! The winner is the person that gets their card correct and collects the most cards!
