Hi Debbie,

I am not sure if you are aware but there appears to be a slight error on Unit 1 sounds page.

The sounds /c/ and /ck/ are both represented by the letter /k/

Best regards,
Teacher Helen

Hi Teacher Helen,

The sound is always shown in 'slash marks', and the sound /k/ is the same in words like 'cat', 'kit' and 'duck'.

The sound stays the same - shown as /k/ - and it is the graphemes (letters or letter groups) which change.

So, in Unit 1, the sound /k/ is represented by the graphemes c, k and ck in various word examples.

I hope this helps.

Debbie
Smile

Not really, Teacher Helen - this is not notation that teachers are necessarily trained in at all.

You will also find much confusion in the wider phonics publishing domain regarding 'what' is shown in the slash marks. Slash marks are often used liberally in just the way you thought they maybe should be used (enclosing the graphemes, that is, the spelling alternatives) - so you are not at all alone in what you thought!
