This week we will be practising the phoneme oo and oo.
Remember oo is a digraph (2 letters that make 1 sound) and they make two different sounds. The long sounding oo (as in boot and moon) and the short sounding oo (foot and cook).
Words to practise:
Long sounding oo Short sounding oo
How many other oo words you can find?
Sentence for writing:

Yes/No question (for reading):

Here are some common exception words to learn, try putting them into a sentence with one of the oo words for writing. For example: I took my friend to the zoo. In school I can ask to get a book.
