Apparently time has one? I believe this is an issue with my hearing rather than his pronounciation.

I think he might mean split digraphs = as in the 'ie' (eye) sound in time is made up of an i and an e, but they are split by the m in the middle - so when you sound the word out it is t - ie - m, but written t -i -m -e, so the digraph (two letters to make one sound) is ie, and it is split by the m, making it a split digraph.
So he is absolutely right :)

If you go onto the Phonics Play website and select any of the free games, and select Phase 5 then the appropriate split digraph patterns in the boxes, B can practise playing games with the split digraph sounds he is learning at school :)

Some of the stuff he comes out with is incredible. And he remembers everythign the teacher ahs said and repeats it word for word, which sometimes gets rather annoying.
