Speed sound information
On this page you will find out more about the speed sounds your child is taught during their Read, Write Inc sessions. Below, you will find some speed sound cards you can print at home and practise with your child. Please speak to their teacher so you know which sounds they should be practising.
There are set 1, 2 and 3 speed sounds cards:
Set 1 sounds include all alphabet sounds and sh, ch, th, ng and nk. When your child is learning these sounds they will also complete 'Word Time' sessions. These sessions show your child how to put the sounds together to blend.
For example: c - a - t = cat
Set 2 sounds move onto digraphs (2 letters, 1 sound) and trigraphs (3 letters, 1 sound)
Set 3 sounds are alternate spellings of set 2 sounds
For example: ay = ai
ee = ea
They also include split sounds
For example: a-e = make
i-e = smile
All of our classrooms display speed sound charts so your child can refer to the sounds throughout their day at school for all lessons.
