If your child is learning these sounds, help them to:

  • Join in the Set 2 Speed Sounds live lessons each day, Monday to Friday, at 10am. The films are available for 24 hours after the live lesson.
  • Practise the sounds they have been taught from the My Sets 2 and 3 Speed Sounds ebook. Click on the title to take you to the ebook. The book has notes for parents.
  • Complete the Speed Sounds Practise Sheets for the Speed Sounds they have learnt. They are given below.
  • Read the ebooks at Red Ditty level, then Green level, then Purple level, in order. We recommend your child read each ebook 3 times, just as they would at school: once, to read the words correctly; a second time with more fluency; and a third time, using a 'storyteller' voice that shows their understanding.
