Phonics and reading
Each Thursday your child will bring home their new reading books and phonic homework sheets to complete in pencil. The phonic reading books give the children an opportunity to practise their reading skills. The books can be read multiple times during the week giving the children the chance to recognise unfamiliar words and build up their confidence when reading independently. We ask that every child aims to read at home every day for around ten minutes each time.
The children are now quite familiar with the phonic sheets and using their segmenting and blending skills to read the words. Please complete them in pencil and put them back in the reading folder ready to be marked the following Thursday.
Below is a copy of the letter from Mrs Dempsey and the link to the phonics and early reading section from our website, which you may find useful when completing the phonic homework.
