We encourage parents to support their children with their early reading and phonics at home as often as possible to allow the children to consolidate their learning from school.
Children will bring home their phonics folders daily. We encourage children and adults at home to share the children’s learning together to reinforce new learning and to revisit previous learning. Click on the image above for a breakdown of the contents of the phonics folder and how this can be used at home to support your child.
Below are some helpful links to videos that provide additional information and support on various aspects of phonics learning including the pronunciation of sounds as well as segmenting and blending.
