Developing your child’s phonics skills is vital when helping them to become confident and fluent readers. ‘Little and often’ is a rule we feel brings most success when working to improve your child’s phonics understanding. Below are some links and activities that will help you when working with your child at home:
http://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ This is a wonderful site! The school subscribes to it and uses it on a daily basis during phonics lessons. The children really enjoy playing the games and learning at the same time.
http://www.mrthornedoesphonics.com/ This site provides short videos that teach the children how to say a particular phoneme and allows them to practise reading words with the particular phoneme in. It’s great if you aren’t sure how to pronounce the sounds yourself!
http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/ This site gives you information on the different phonic phases and lots of ideas of how to support your child.
