The Long A sound

 

Hello Year 3 and Year 4-

Here are some videos to help you revise all the ways the letter can sound when we talk about its long sound – the same as its name.

We hope you enjoy the videos and that they help you with spelling!

Sing and revise as often as you like!

Enjoy. Lindley and Teacher

Ever wonder why English spelling is difficult?

Hello-

This video falls into the category of FYI (for your information) and may help to explain why English can be a difficult language to learn in terms of spelling.

Understanding the background of English also makes the case for «deep learning» of  English phonics, so that students have a variety of tools to help them master this tricky language.

We hope you enjoy the video.

This next link gives very concrete examples of just why English is confusing.

So, the method we are currently using at Alquería is a method of synthetic phonics.  For more information, please see this entry from our colleague in the preschool explaining the initial stages of synthetic phonics.

Hi Year 5 and Year 6-

As you know, in our language department,  we take «one step forward, and two steps back» to make sure you remember what you have already learned.

We hope you enjoy these video «self tests» as a fun way to refresh your memory!  Let us know in the comments section if you played the videos and if you enjoyed them.

 

Have fun!

Sincerely,

Teacher and Lindley
