Following an update from the DfE around phonics teaching we have moved to Essential Letters and Sounds; this is a phonics programme based on Letters and Sounds (2007). This new phonics programme will support your children in making quick progress to become fluent and confident readers.
To best support us in teaching your child how to read we ask that you read the decodable text provided by the school 4 times across the week. Spending 10 minutes a day reading with your child will hugely support them in their journey to becoming an independent reader.
We will also be sending home a weekly overview of what we have been learning each week in phonics. (see documents below).
Please take the time to watch the videos below to ensure you are supporting your child with the correct pronunciation of the sounds.
