Set up an imaginary baked goods delivery service to explore the ‘ough’ spelling with Cara Fairhall’s scrummy idea.
The ‘ough’ spelling is a tricky one – it can represent so many different sounds and there’s no obvious pattern for how it might sound in any given word, whether that’s the /or/ sound in ‘thought’, /ou/ in ‘plough’ or /oa/ in ‘doughnut’.
This lesson involves children running their own imaginary doughnut delivery service in teams of two, deciding which sound the ‘ough’ spelling makes in various different words.
Conclude activities by penning and performing your own ‘ough’ themed poems, using all the words you’ve discovered.
Cara Fairhall is project coordinator at Jolly Learning and supports teachers, parents and trainers all over the world. She has previously spent time teaching in Ethiopia. Find out more at jollylearning.co.uk and follow on Twitter at @jollylearning.
