Word Time

We practise reading green words using our 'Fred talk.' 


Once children can sound out a word, we teach them to say the sounds silently in their heads. This is known as 'Fred in your head.'


We show them how to do this by:

2. mouthing the sounds silently and then saying the whole word;

3. saying the whole word straight away
