It is the First World War and the men in the trenches are waiting to go into battle.
Sound Reads is a series of books written for older beginner readers. The books are graded to support a synthetic phonic approach.
In Set 3, readers will be confident with all single letter sounds and also letter combinations such as: ay, ai, ee, ea, oa, ow, ar, er and ir. They should also be familiar with long vowel sounds including those using the final e such as: made, eve, pipe, hope, cube. Word endings and multi-syllable words are also used.
Each book enables learners to consolidate their phonics skills and to practise a growing range of everyday (often irregular) words. A small number of more challenging, new words are also listed at the beginning of each book. It is recommended that learners become familiar with these at the start.
Reinforcement activities are available for each book as a Workout. It is expected that mentors support learners with both the word lists and the follow up activities.
