When two letters are together they often make a different sound, we call this a digraph. With the children we use the term digraph alongside the term 'special friend'. They say something different when they are together. This is a useful tool when your child begins to read as you can ask them to look for the 'special friends' before attempting to sound out the word. Please watch the video for correct pronunciation.
