The following words, taken from our Year 3/4 list, use ‘ou’ in the middle, but make different sounds when read.
The task this week is to find a way of remembering how to spell these words. The children can do this in a variety of ways: use doodle pictures (e.g. show thought as a thought bubble and through as a tunnel), rainbow words (write over the same words many times in different colours), pyramid words (start with a single letter at the top of the pyramid and add a letter on each layer) or any other way that helps remember how to spell them.
- through, thought, though, although
- enough, rough, tough,
- favourite, famous
