HOW TO HELP AND SUPPORT YOUR CHILD
Phonics is a method of teaching reading and writing by developing the learners’ phonemic awareness. The goal of phonics is to enable beginning readers to decode new written words by sounding them out, or in phonics terms, blending the sound-spelling patterns.
We teach phonics using Little Wandle - Letters and Sounds and you can find more information and recorded lessons here: Letters and Sounds for Home and School - YouTube
It is important that children are supported with their phonics at home. We recommend spending 5 minutes each day working together on the different sounds.
There are some great websites available. Please click on the links and have a go!
