Read Write Inc sessions are continuing on YouTube for the children each day. For those children in Miss Clifton's group they can practise Set 2 sounds which are now on a loop; this is what we would do if they were in school. It allows the children to master reading and writing these sounds, in words, effortlessly before they move onto Set 3 sounds. (Set 3 sounds would usually be taught when the children begin Pink books or move into Year 1) Below you can find multi-syllabic words; set 1 for Miss Usmar's group and those containing Set 2 sounds which would be the next step for the children in Miss Clifton's group before moving onto Set 3 sounds. 

To read these the children would read one syllable at a time eg. in the word standing the children would read "stand" and then "ing" and put the two together to read the whole word "standing".
