The basic procedure was that the pupil should have a notebook (their ‘dictionary’) in which words were written down in families. The first page contained three-letter words (consonant, short vowel, consonant), with the words bag, beg, big, bog and bug. I had used these words with Brenda and again in the paper which I had submitted at the conference at St Bartholomew’s Hospital eight years earlier (Miles, 1962).
