3. BlendingWhen reading, children need to understand the meaning of the words. Before theycan do this, they have to be able to work out what the words say. ln order to do so, thechildren look at the letters, say the sounds, run them together and listen for the word.This process is a key phonic skill called blending. Blending is sometimes referred to assynthesising, which is why Jolly Phonics is known as a synthetic phonics programme.With the ability to blend, children are able to read unknown regular words. They arealso in a far better position to attempt more challenging words that are not completelydecodable at this stage.In the beginning, most children are not able to blend and need to be taught how. Theteaching of aural blending can begin on the children’s first day of school, using theirPupil Books. The children are shown the picture of the sun on their lesson page andasked if they can see a /s-u-n/. Only a few children in the class will hear the wordafter it has been split into its individual sounds. After a few more examples, using thepictures on the page – /s-p-ie-d-er/, /s-n-ai-l/ and /t-r-ee/ – one or two more childrenmight be tuned in to hear the words. The following day, after teaching the next lettersound, a few examples from the /a/ page could be called out, such as /a-n-t/ and /a-rrow/. Any object on the page could be used, although short words are preferable. Eachday, a few more children will be able to hear the words. Some children have a naturalability for blending, but success comes to all in the end.Once children can hear the word when an adult says the letter sounds, they areready to say the sounds for themselves and try listening for the word. Blending needspractice and should be started as soon as possible. On most days, teachers shouldtry to write short regular words, such as tap, pan, pit, sit and pin, on the board or onflashcards, making sure that the words use only those sounds that have been taught.The children then say the sounds and listen for the word. The daily Word Bank in theTeacher’s Book is useful for this activity. In addition, there are words to blend eachday on the lesson pages in Pupil Book 1 (except for /s/ and /a/, which show only thesounds). Children should not use any actions when blending words.The children who can hear the words understand how the alphabetic code worksfor reading. They realise that it is something they can work out for themselves. Thisknowledge fascinates them and their confidence grows.For most children, blending is relatively easy. However, some children find it difficultand need to be taught exactly what to do. There are two main reasons for children notbeing able to hear the word when they have said the sounds:1. They do not know the letter sounds well enoughAs soon as the child sees a letter, the sound should come automatically tothem. If they have to pause to think, they lose track of the word. To correctthis, it is necessary to revise the sounds regularly with flashcards, actions andother letter-sound activities.2. The letter sounds are wrongly emphasisedThe emphasis should be on the first letter sound, for example, on the /d/ of/d-o-g/. If the children put the emphasis on the last letter sound, they may tryto start the word with that sound and fail to hear the word.16JLXX JPTB33.indd 1628/07/2020 15:00

BlendingThere are two types of sound in English. One type makes a pure, continuous sound:examples include /ssssss/, /ffffff/, /rrrrrr/, /mmmm/, /nnnnnn/ and /vvvvvv/. The othertype has a schwa on the end. The schwa, which sounds like /uh/, is an unstressed vowelsound, and it can be heard on the end of many letter sounds. For example, /b/ cannot besaid without a schwa: /buh/. All sounds should be said with as little schwa as possible.In blending, the first sound needs to be louder than the others. This helps thechildren to remember how the word starts. The sounds that follow in the word needto be spoken softly and quickly, and the schwa should be avoided where possible.This technique has been found to be effective and about three quarters of the childrenmaster it quite quickly. Although blending is more difficult for the other children, allthey need is more practice. Frequently, in a whole-class situation, the children whoare good at blending call out the answer quickly and the less able copy them, as theydo with letter sounds on flashcards. To remedy this situation, teachers can provide anextra blending session for the weaker children.Initial consonant blendsBlending skills can be improved if the children practise saying the initial consonantblends. Examples of common consonant blends are: /cr/, /fl/ and /str/. The childrenlook at the individual letter sounds and blend them together, so it is important thatthey only practise blends which contain the letter sounds they know. For example,if the sound /w/ has not been introduced, /sw/ should not be given to the children toblend. Being able to say blends fluently makes it easier for the children to read wordswith initial consonant blends. They are encouraged to work out the word by saying theblend, followed by the individual sounds: for example, /pl-a-n/, not /p-l-a-n/. In PupilBook 1, words with initial consonant blends are introduced from page 11 onwards.When blending words with digraphs, the children have to remember to look at thetwo letters and say one sound. This more complicated skill is mastered when regularwords using the digraphs are blended. For example, when the /ai/ sound has beentaught, flashcards can be held up showing regular /ai/ words, like pain, rain, train,Spain, hail and snail. The children say the sounds and blend them together to read theword. Alternatively, the words could be written on the board.Consonant-vowel ifrofrustastestistostugragregrigrogru17JLXX JPTB33.indd 1728/07/2020 15:00

Jolly Phonics Pupil Book 1: Page 32Letter Sound /ch/Flashcards Revise some of the sounds already taught, whichinclude /g/, /o/, /u/, /l/, /f/, /b/, /ai/, /j/, /oa/, /ie/, /ee/,/or/, /z/, /w/, /ng/, /v/, /oo/, /oo/, /y/, /x/.AnswersIntroducing the letter sound Introduce the sound /ch/. Use a story such as theone below, along with the action:The children in Charlie’s class are studying transport.Their teacher has arranged an outing to a transportmuseum. In the afternoon, the children get to rideon a steam train. They are very excited. They allclimb into the carriage. The train starts chugging:“ch, ch, ch, ch.” The train goes faster: “ch, ch, ch,ch!” Then, steam comes out of the funnel and thewhistle blows. “Choo! Choo!” The next day at school,all the children pretend to be trains, going, “ch, ch,ch, ch!” They chuff around, pretending to stop at lotsof different places so that the passengers can get onand off. The children move their arms at their sides like asteam train and say ch, ch, ch, ch.Letter formation The sound /ch/ is written with two letters. When twoletters make one sound it is called a digraph. Explain how to write the digraph ‹ch›, joining theletters. The children practise writing ‹ch›, ‹ng›, ‹v›,‹oo›, ‹y› and ‹x› in their books.Blending Show the children the words chop, chain, torch andbunch in their books. Say the sounds with the children, and then blendthe sounds together to read the word. Encourage the children to point to the dot underneath each sound as they say it.68Identifying the sounds Show the children the four pictures in their booksand ask them to listen carefully. Say the word foreach one: chick, bench, cheese, chimney. The children count the sounds in each word, colourin the correct number of dots, and write ‹ch› in thecorrect ‘sound’ dot [3 ch-i-ck; 4 b-e-n-ch; 3 ch-ee-se;5 ch-i-m-n-ey].JLXX JPTB33.indd 68Word bankchain, chat, cheek, chin, chip, chop, coach, much,rich, such, torch, check, chess, chick, chill, bench,bunch, chest, chimp, lunch, munch, pinch, speech,drench Call out the word rich. The children say the sounds,holding up a finger for each one: /r-i-ch/. Write theletters on the board as they do so.

Use a story such as theone below, along with the action:Mrs Shaw has just had a baby. The baby is calledShannon. Sam is the baby’s elder brother. Samthinks Shannon is okay, but she cries a lot. While hismother tries to get Shannon to sleep, Sam goes andplays with his toys. He plays with his cash register.It makes a very loud “ting” when the cash draweropens. “Shshshsh,” whispers Mrs Shaw, putting herfinger to her lips. “Shannon is nearly asleep. Let’s godownstairs for a while.” “Okay,” says Sam, adding,“shshshsh,” as they tiptoe quietly from the room. The children place their index finger against theirlips, saying shshshsh.Letter formation Explain how to write the digraph ‹sh›, joining theletters. The children practise writing ‹sh›, ‹v›, ‹oo›,‹y›, ‹x› and ‹ch› in their books.Blending The children look at the words dish, shop, sheepand brush in their books. They say the sounds andblend them together to read each word.Identifying the sounds Show the children the four pictures in their booksand ask them to listen carefully.
