During your child’s time in Reception they will be taught phonics using Read, Write Inc. Read Write Inc. Phonics teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. They learn to form each letter, spell correctly, and compose their ideas step-by-step.
Each week your child will be taught 4 or sometimes 5 letter sounds as well as using those sounds to read and write words.
We have learnt these 5 sounds this week. Ask your child if they remember any of the sounds. Can they think of a word which starts with the sound (sound not letter e.g: George makes j sound not g so for a j word George would be accepted as j word as this is the sound your child hears.
Sound out (robot talk) see if your child can hear the word you are sounding
