MAGIC E WORDS (often known as split digraphs)

    Read the following words out aloud. Notice how the "magic e"
    affects the way we say the previous vowel.
                  cap          cape                slop          slope
    The way we say the -a- in cape is different to the way that
    we say it in cap. This is because of the magic e.

    underline the vowel that is affected by the magic e.
