Phonics - Digraphs (Consonant)
The letters 's' and 'h' make a 'sh' sound. Be quiet!

Phonics - Digraphs (Consonant)

This quiz asks children to recognise consonant digraphs - the two letter graphemes/sounds that they see daily. The National Curriculum asks children in KS1 to learn how to read using phonics and this quiz will aid that requirement. Becoming familiar with digraphs will enhance their knowledge of English and literacy.

There are certain consonant letters, that when together make a different sound. If the letter ‘s’ and ‘h’ are next to each other, they make a ‘sh’ sound. There are a few letters that belong together like this. Play this quiz and see how many you get right.
