Reading: Phonics

Friday 20 October 2023

Today your child will have brought home a pack of sounds as well as tricky words. There is a letter explaining how to use these to help your child with their phonics learning.

After half-term,  the children will start learning more and more alternative ways to write the sounds they know (for example, ie making the /igh/ sound). Each week we will send home the new graphemes for you to practise as well as any new tricky words we have learnt.

Have a look at the games you can play with the flashcards we have sent home here.  For more information about Little Wandle phonics and videos of how to say some the sounds, look here.

A quick reminder as well that reading records should be brought in on a Thursday and library books should be brought in on a Friday.

Thanks a lot for your support. I look forward to seeing you at parent’s evening and the class assembly next week.
