Set 2 Sounds
There are 12 Set 2 ‘speed sounds’ that are made up of two or three letters which represent just one sound.
For example, 'ay' as in play, 'ee' as in tree and 'igh' as in high.
When your child learns their Set 2 sounds they will learn:
- the letters that represent a speed sound e.g. ay;
- a simple picture prompt linked to the ‘speed sound’;
- a short phrase to say e.g. 'May I play?'
Green Words in Set 2
Every speed sound has a list of green words linked to it, so your child can ‘sound out’ and ‘sound blend’ words containing the new speed sound they have just learnt.
For example, s-p-r-ay => spray.
ay: day play say may tray today
