Phonics and Reading                                                                                                                                                            

We will continue to practise our word blending during our Phonics lessons. We will use Fred Frog to help us. We will also be learning the Red Words.

Word Blending - You can support your child with their word reading, by revisiting the individual sounds we have previously covered. You can then practise blending these sounds together to make simple words. Consonant Vowel Consonant (CVC) words work best for this (e.g. c-a-t  - cat, d-o-g  - dog etc).

- If you are unsure how to pronounce the Phonics sounds correctly please watch this video;

- If you wish to find out more about blending (sounding out) with Fred Frog, please watch this video;


If you wish to support your child further with their Phonics at home, you can purchase a set of Read Write Inc flashcards from Amazon: The digraph (two letters that make one sound) flashcards would also be a good investment as we teach these after Christmas:

The children learn each sound using a picture hook, an action and a letter formation rhyme. These are explained on each flashcard. Any practise with these at home would greatly support your child with their phonic knowledge.
