Set 2:

Tious/cious - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wkMY4xXe4s   

 

Set 3 – if you have been learning set 3, we are going to go through the sounds again to help build our fluency:     

Ai - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFNb0hPMbXg   

 

Then read the RWI book online https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/ 

 

Go onto ‘ebooks’ then you will need to register (this is free of charge) and then you will be able to access all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child. Please note that the RWI phonics scheme is based on lots of repetition. Therefore, we usually read the same book about 3 or 4 times before moving onto a new book. For some children they may need to read it more than this to ensure they are completely fluent in reading the book (no sounding out). 

A general guide is: 

1st read – decoding all the words – sound out as much as you need to. 

2nd read – read for fluency (try to read with more fluency and expression). 

3rd read – read with fluency, expression and comprehension. Try answering the comprehension questions at the back. 

 

This website also provides lots of other information for parents about phonics. It has other resources on here too should you wish to explore!
