Please follow the link below for today's Read write inc lessons. Please do watch each lesson to practise the sounds.


Set 1 speed sounds - today's sound is e

Set 1 word time

Set 1 spellings


Set 2 speed sounds - today's sound is ow

Set 2 spellings


If you have already completed the Set 2 sounds please follow:

Red words 1 lesson  and  Hold a sentence 1 lesson. Do keep practising those set 2 sounds too.


Today we move onto to either a new ditty sheet or a new story in the red ditty book. Remember to sound out each word and you can support your child if they need help blending the sounds together to read each word. You can take turns with them to help them build up the stamina to read longer sentences. 

As your reading challenge today I would like you to find a story book at home and see if you can find any of your tricky words in the book, or spot any of the letter sounds you have been learning. Once you have done this you could maybe use the picture in your book to tell one of your toys a story. I would love to see some videos of this. wink
