Phonics – Please encourage your child to access the website ‘Phonics Play.’ Here you will find lots of games and activities that will support and consolidate your child’s current learning. Year 1 children should use the phase 5 section. We especially love ‘Reading Robot’ as it helps us to read nonsense and real word (they are fantastic at this!). We sometimes like to play hangman with simple words and make up our own alien words.

Reading  – This could be books, comics, recipes etc. It is really important that the children discuss what they have read, ask them questions, encourage them to ask questions, talk about what has happened already and what might happen next. Reading to your child is just as important.
