PHONICS sounds/games/apps and songs

It is really important to read with your child everyday! All it takes is 5 minutes each day. Talk about the book, the characters in the story and use the pictures as prompts. Give opportunities for children to ask their own questions about the story, did they enjoy the book, who were their favourite characters, why?


They are so excited about reading, so share in this excitement to help to build on their confidence and reading skills.



Thank you for your continued support

Phonics Presentation for parents

 We have now taught phase 2 phonics and started phase3. The children are very excited and have already started using the phonemes (Sounds) and digraphs they have been taught. Many children have been practising writing letters with chalks outside and in the sand, showing great perseverance in trying to perfect the correct letter formation. This will encourage more mark making, with more children choosing to add writing to their play. Please use the sounds that we send home to support your child's phonic knowledge. Watch the clip below to hear how to pronounce phase 2 and 3 sounds.
