    Hearing the Second Sound

    CCVC Words like f-r-o-g

    When children are confident with letter sounds, digraphs and CVC words, we move on to teach CCVC words.
    consonant-consonant-vowel-consonant

    Traditionally the CC combination of sounds has been taught as a 'blend'
    For example: frog is made up of the blend ‘fr’, the short sound vowel ‘o’ and consonant ‘g’

    But now we teach it as f-r-o-g, recognising and sounding out each of the sounds individually. For this reason we do not referr to CC combinations as blends but we still cover them in our packs.

    Many children struggle with spelling CCVC words as they do not hear or recognise the second sound.


    There are three different skills that we focus on when teaching digraphs in CCVC words:

    1. Sound out the CCVC word by pulling apart each sound (segmenting), including digraphs
    s-k-i-p
    b-r-u-sh

    2. Focus on hearing the second sound, this is often missed when spelling skip
    s-k-i-p the second sound in skip is k
    brush, b-r-u-sh the second sound in brush is r

    3. Put the sounds back together (blending) to read the word, including digraphs
    s-k-i-p makes the word skip
    b-r-u-sh makes the word brush
