Set 2 Phonics Practise

There are 12 Set 2 ‘speed sounds’ that are made up of two or three letters which represent just one sound, e.g. ay as in play, ee as in tree and igh as in high. These are ‘special friend’ sounds. When children are taught Set 2 sounds they will learn:

• a simple picture prompt linked to the sound

• a short phrase to say e.g. may I play

• the letters that represent a sound (special friends) e.g. ay.
