Please ensure that children are reading every day. It is important that they are practicing their sounds and enjoying stories they read or that are read to them. Remember that it is important to talk about the book too. Comprehension skills are just as important as decoding.
Use your red phonic books to revise the 'Speed Sounds' that your child has been learning. Look for the sounds in reading books. In the packs sent home, we have included a writing book that Mrs Smith has begun that you are welcome to use, a pencil that we use in school to encourage the correct grip and a phonic card. We have covered Set 1 and 2 sounds with Reception children. Set 3 sounds are on the back of this sheet and there is a lovely video under the 'Phonics' icon where children can read along with Sylvia to practice. Please ensure that children are secure with Set 1 and 2 before beginning to learn the Set 3 sounds.
Below are some different activities to complete. Please ensure if children are writing words, that they are using the correct letter formation and working hard to hold their pencil correctly and comfortably.
Please feel free to mix and match! No compulsory order needed.
