Silent Letters

Description: There are some words in the English language that have letters that are written but not pronounced - so called ‘silent letters’.

This is why we have devised this activity to reinforce the learning of these awkward words, in a fun and interactive way. Learning Outcomes: Children will have practised and improved their spelling of words which contain silent letters.
