Set 1 sounds

Children learn the Set 1 sounds first using the RWI sound cards and rhymes.
Set 1 sounds are learnt in the following order:
m a s t d i p o g o c k u b f e l h r j v y w z x
Once children have learnt the first group of Set 1 sounds, they then start to read words containing these sounds. We call these 'green words'.
Children will also be introduced to 'special friends' which are words with two or three letters making one sound.

Once they have become confident with using 'Fred Talk' to read some words, the children then start to read short 'ditties' and sentences.
They also learn to read some 'red words'. These are tricky words that can't be read using 'Fred talk'.
Children in Windmills class will receive a 'My Set 1 Speed Sound' book to support them with practising reading and writing these sounds at home.  The handwriting phrase for each letter can be found in the document below. There is also a video from Read Write Inc which is designed to support parents with practising Set 1 sounds with their child.
