Phonics Set 1

Set 1 Speed Sounds

These are the Set 1 Sounds written with one letter:


m  a  s  d  t  i  n  p  g  o  c  k  u  b  f  e  l  h  r  j  v  y  w  z  x


These sounds are written with two letters ( your child will call these special friends):


sh  th  ch  qu  ng  nk  ck


Check if your child can read these sounds. Make sure they make the letter sound like 'mmmm' not the letter name like 'em'. Use the pronunciation guide on the home page to support you.
