Reading and Phonics
It is essential that your child brings in their Reading Record every day. We welcome feedback from you so please feel free to write a comment about how your child is doing at home. Please read with your child every day- even if it is only for a few minutes.
We learn phonics through Letters and Sounds. Your child will be bringing home a plan of the phonics taught during this half term.
*Phonics to practise can also be found at the back of your child's Reading Record too.
