We are getting very good at sounding out words and at recognising word families. We use the 'Say, cover, write and check' method, when we are writing out our word families each day. First we say the word (or sound it out if we do not recognise it). Then we cover the word and next we try to sound it out in our heads and write it from memory. Lastly, we check our word to make sure that we have written it correctly.
