The children will continue to consolidate the sounds they have learnt so far as well as read and write simple sentences. Please encourage your child to use these sounds when they are writing.

Below is a list of the Set 1 sounds, as well as the phrases.

Some of your children have been introduced to the Set 2 sounds (attached below). These are the vowel sounds.  Your children will now have the sounds they need to write any word phonetically.
