You can access them on the Twinkl website. We will now move onto final blends, consonant blends at the end of a word, please explain this to your child. Introduce 'ft' adult to write silly sentences: 'The soft hair was a gift on a drift' and 'Shift the raft so it can not drift to the left'. Child to read (please support if necessary) then underline or highlight 'ft' words. Next can you write any of these words if your adult says them aloud?
