initial, medial and final consonant sounds; short, medial vowel sounds; initial and final digraphs, such as ch, sh.
(iii) Know that there are more sounds than letters in English and that these may not correspond to sounds in their other languages
(iv) Use basic sound-symbol correspondence to help spell words they want to write, as appropriate to individual learners
(v) Start to use knowledge of common letter patterns in English to help spell words they want to write
(vi) Learn the terms vowel and consonant and starting to apply them to spelling

This resource will help learners recognise words related to personal information. Learners will read, match, fill in the gaps and identify the number of syllables.
