Set 2 Sounds

Now that your child knows all their single sounds, some simple ‘special friends’ and has learnt to blend simple words, they will now learn:  

  • To read and recognise Set 2 Speed Sounds: ay, ee, igh, ow (as in blow) oo (as in zoo) oo (as in look), ar, or, air, ir, ou (as in out), oy 

  • To read words containing these sounds 

  • Read a wider range of  ‘red words’ (words that cannot be read using phonic skills). 

  • To read Pink, Orange and Yellow Storybooks, building speed and fluency. 

Set 2 Sounds 

Each sound is linked to a picture hook and a rhyme to help the children learn and remember the sounds.
