Activity 1

Can you make a grid of oy and oi words just like I have below? How many you can think of with each digraph? I hope that you can think up more than me! Can you say each word in a sentence out loud to ensure you understand what each word means?









Activity 2

Read these sentences with an adult and then see if you can you copy them out in your neatest handwriting and highlight all of the oi and oy words?

The boy laughed because he thought the oyster had poison in it.

Do many royals enjoy going to work?

Will it spoil a toy mouse if you boil it in oil?

Can you make up one sentence of your own using one oi and one oy word?


Activity 3. Can you spot all of the oi words?

Activity 4. Can you spot all of the oy words?

Boil the Toy oi oy mnemonic (the two spellings of /oi/)

Boil the Toy song -to recognise oi and oy digraphs

And finally... Can you read and write all of these tricky words?
