How to Help at Home:
The following websites are recommended to promote the practice of reading and phonics:
(Phase 2-4 Games will consolidate learning from EYFS, Phase 5 games will consolidate learning from Year 1.)
(You have to register to access the above site... however it is free and has access to over 250 ebooks which are tablet friendly!)
When supporting your child with reading and phonics, please remember to...
- Say each sound in the word from left to right.
- Blend the sounds by pointing to each letter, i.e. /b/ in bat, or letter group, i.e. /igh/ in sigh, as you say the sound, then run your finger under the whole word as you say it.
- Be careful to only say the sound and don't, for example, add in an 'uh' sound when saying sounds like 'b' (which is a very soft sound just made with your lips, and shouldn't be pronounced 'b-uh' or 'bee' (which is the letter name, not its sound).
- Talk about the meaning if your child does not understand the word they have read.
- Work at your child’s pace.
- Always be positive and give lots of praise and encouragement.
