THE MORE YOU READ THE MORE YOU LEARN
To help support your child at home:-
- encouraging them to sound them out, using the letter sounds and not the names. Make sure they pronounce each sound clearly and help them to put together sounds that they know, e.g. sh o p, b oo t.
- reminding them to look at picture clues as well as sounding out
- encourage them to read before and after the word so that they think about what makes sense.
- help them to learn all the basic key words, including tricky words.
