One of the best ways that you can help your child at home is to read with them as often as possible. We'd love to see lots of our children getting their Fab Four Reader reward! Reading your child's reading book is an enjoyable and rewarding experience for both you and your child. Please encourage your child to point to each word as they read and then as they become more confident in their letter and sound knowledge help them to segment the sounds and blend them together for each word. For example to work out how to read the word pat they would say, p-a-t, pat. For more information about how we pronounce letter sounds or if you have any questions regarding your child's reading, please do not hesitate to ask one of the team.
www.phonicsplay.co.uk During our Phonics sessions, where we learn about letter sounds, reading and spelling, we sometimes play games on the phonics play website. Please feel free to take a look and have a go at some of the games with your child.
Please also help your child to be as independent as possible in things like getting dressed. Getting dressed themselves means that they can start PE sessions and the lessons following PE swiftly. The more responsibility they can take for this the less items of clothing that go missing too! Our PE day is Tuesday but please bring PE kits in on a Monday and leave them in school all week in case of any extra sessions.
