What sounds do you know? Can you write them?

Remember to talk to your child about the spelling pattern for the week when you practise.
Remember to read, read, read!
The more reading that your child does, the better their phonics and writing will be!
This does not have to be their reading book every night. Here are some ideas for reading activities that you could do with your child...
Reading the food packets in a supermarket.
Looking for letters and signs when you are travelling in the car or bus.
Finding sounds to read at the park or at the swimming pool.
Making and reading sounds with paint water, stones or other craft materials.
