How do the letter and digraph rhymes work?
In order to help scaffold learning for children, we have devised a series of letter rhymes and digraph rhymes to help them remember the correct letter formation of phase 2 graphemes, and the phase 3 and 5 digraphs by relating the grapheme and phoneme to a familiar picture. The whimsical images help children to remember the formation and appearance of each grapheme without overloading their working memory, creating as many multi-sensory links as possible. Instructions for using the letter rhymes are included in the relevant lessons, so you’ll know exactly how and when to use them. School members can download the various cards, mats and friezes from the relevant lesson folders or using the "Download Resources" button below.
Take a look at some of the example rhymes below.
