It is important not to adding ‘uh’ to the end of a sound. Some sounds are stretchy fffffffff, lllllllllllll, mmmm, nnnnnnn. Some sounds are bouncy c, t, p, b, y.

9 Helping your child: Common difficulties: Try to encourage your child to only say the sound once, rather than over and over. Do not only focus on one scheme e.g. Letter land, Jolly Phonics. These are great but sometimes children learn the picture rather than the letter sound. Don’t get frustrated if your child can say the sounds, but not blend to read the word. With practice and patience, they will get there. Making it fun: Eye spy. Eye spy. Fred talk with a toy/puppet. Fred talk with a toy/puppet. Letter hunt (What can we find starting with a ‘s’?)
