ew grapheme (Cool Blue)


1. Download the PowerPoint. Use this to introduce the ew grapheme that makes the long oo sound. Select a game. Play Word Bomb – read the word on the page (and get a point) and then decide whether to continue to the next page or go home. Which game has the most words?


Note: ew words are often past tense verbs.

2. Watch the ‘Monster Phonics Crew’ video. Ask the children to make the Cool Blue (round mouth) action every time they hear an ew word.

3. Children to make a poster to show what they have learnt about ew words. Maybe add some funny sentences if possible. Make the ew sound stand out in the poster using a bright colour.
