Am teaching this to Y1 tomorrow, just wanted to make sure I get this right! Obviously usually it makes a hard /c/ sound, tomorrow I will teach it sometimes makes a soft /s/ sound. However unlike alternative pronunications am I right in thinking it's not random? ca - always makes a hard c- as in cat ce - always makes a soft c - as in cent ci - always makes a soft c - as in cinema co - always makes a hard c - as in cost cu - always makes a hard c - as in cult This is at the start of words. Have I got this right? Are there any obvious exceptions I should be aware of? Also, is now the right time to teach /ce/ at the end of the word usually makes a soft /c/ (ie piece)? Touched on this 2 weeks ago when doing split digraphs and they obviously hadn't been taught it yet (I only took over in Jan). Am quite new to teaching phonics, want to make sure I get it right!
