Reading and Phonics

Phonics play is a free website with lots of super games to practise sounds and blending words together. Depending on what colour book your child brings home will help you to pick which phase they should focus on:

Phase 2 - pink and red books

Phase 3 - Yellow and blue books

Phase 5 - blue, green and orange books. 

Please continue to read with your child as much as possible. This can be a book from school or your own books from home. Have a look at the books and see which words your children might be able to read themselves. Even just listening to stories being read to them is beneficial to children as it will help expand their vocabulary and get them used to the structure of stories.
