Creating words with 'magic thumbs'

Talkie Time: Rodd uses his ‘magic thumbs’ to create words with different middle sounds. During the pause, the teacher could discuss with the children what other sounds can go in the middle of b and d to make new words. There are opportunities for them to practise saying the sounds and blending sounds together to make words.
