Did you know that the main vowels in the English language are A, E, I, O, and U? There are some other letters that sometimes represents a vowel sound. One of those letters is, Y. So, when is ‘Y’ a vowel and when is it a consonant?
When you see a ‘Y’ at the beginning of a word, then it is a consonant. If it appears anywhere else then it is acting as part of a vowel sound. So the ‘Y’ in yellow? A consonant. The ‘Y’ in sky, bicycle, and gym? Vowels.
We hope that you have a joyful day at school. Remember to be kind. We Love You.
