Websites for Phonics

Here are some websites that you can use to help your child to read words in preparation for their phonics screening next term!

 

Remember in school we always remind the children with the phrases:

‘Special friends’ (this means children need to look for the two or three letters that make one sound i.e. air, ew, ow, igh)

‘Fred Talk’ (this means children need to segment or sound out the word after finding the special friends. i.e. ch-a-t / f-l-ow-er)

‘Say the word’ (this means children need to now blend the sounds together to make a word)

Phonics Club on Tuesdays

We are supporting our children through phonics Club on a Tuesday afternoon, they’ve been working really hard this term and their progress is phenomenal! This week it was so hot that we took our club outside. The children focused on ew, ow, and ai/air sounds. We found objects that had those sounds in, played water games and practised writing them. Well done to you all!

Red Ditty Books in Reception

Our Reception children have been working hard this term; learning to read their first Red Ditty books and write about the stories they have read.

They’ve been learning to teach and support each other with the help of their ‘stick of power’. We are really impressed with their enthusiasm and confidence that they show in the RWI sessions!

Well done for all your hard work Reception 🙂
