The television

Sam and Pam watch television for the first time and learn lots of new words too. Can you hear the sounds 'sh', 'ch', 'th' and 'zh'?


Watch the story and then do the activities.


There were lots of words with 'sh', 'ch', 'th' and 'zh' in this story. What was your favourite word? Do you know any other words with 'sh', 'ch', 'th' and 'zh'? Write a comment and tell us!

Hi AgentInternetDove,

We hear 'th' in words like 'three' or 'think'.

The sound 'zh' is the sound we hear in 'treasure' or 'television'.

I hope that helps!


Best wishes,
