This video shows you how to practise the sounds that the children have learnt so far. The children need to say each sound (phoneme) to match the letter (grapheme). They then blend theses sounds to read words.
The following video shows you how to help your child blend sounds to read simple regular words.
Once your child is confident in reading simple regular words, they need to practise reading simple captions and sentences. This video shows you how your child should read a caption. They need to decode each word and then say the whole caption/sentence.
Once your child knows how to read simple captions they will be given a reading book. They should read this book in a similar way, as shown on the video. It is important to read the book several times so that they gain confidence and fluency.
Whichever stage your child is at with their reading, please give them lots of praise and encouragement.
Earlier this month all children participated in a school wide Arts Week. Each year group focused on several artists from around the world, from different time periods. They learned about different styles and techniques and then had a go at creating pieces inspired by their chosen artists. Usually, we would have loved to invite you to the hall to view the children’s fantastic work in our Gallery. Sadly, this year it was not to be. But we still wanted you to get the opportunity to view your child’s artwork – introducing our Virtual Art Gallery! Simply click on your child’s class to view the Gallery. We hope you enjoy seeing what the children have been up to. Thank you for visiting our Gallery – we look forward to the day when we can again welcome you into school to view their work.
