How to do a Phonics session at home with your child:
Remember there are daily phonics videos being uploaded to the vlog everyday for you and your child to follow along with at home.
Begin each Phonics session with a recap of the Set 1 sounds. You can use the desktop sounds chart, Set 1 Slideshow or the green speed sounds book:
Use these Set 1 nonsense words to see if your child can recognise the sounds and blend them together. Make the point that the words don't make sense, but we're going to read them anyway!
Read these Speedy Green Words through with your child. Can they Fred talk them and then blend the sounds together to say the word? For example, "m-a-d...mad" "p-i-g...pig".
Don't forget to do some daily reading too! We expect the children in Reception to read for at least 10mins each day. You can use the guided reading books in your child's book bag or some of the ebooks online by following the link below to the Oxford Owl free ebook library.
