Reading and Phonics

A huge thank you to all the parents who attended the Parent session on Phonics and Reading this evening it was fantastic to see so many of you here. Please see below a copy of the Powerpoint and the Handout notes. The Ruth Miskin website has an absolute wealth of information on too to help support with reading and phonics.

The sound cards we use can be bought from Amazon along with a parents guide. I believe they are about £2 a pack . They are made by Ruth Miskin and come with green words for the children to practise blending too.

Please also see the document below for the pictures which accompany the sounds for set 1 and set 2. Blending can be practised by getting your child either to make the words with magnetic letters on the fridge or in the bath or by writing them down or by doing it orally. See the document below for some word lists you can challenge your children to practise blending and spelling this half term !!

Finally the children are expected to know some words by sight - red words we call them.. the words you cannot sound out. Please see below for the red words we are working on too. The children are expected to be able to read the red words and then to be able to write them too.

PocketPhonics, Teach your Monster to read, Phonics Read CVC, Alphablocks, Phonic Street

Also, see below for a list of suggested stories for storytime Whether they are read to or have a go reading themselves - just having the opportunity to hear and absorb quality texts has huge impact on the children. As if they have not got a good bank of stories in their heads already to draw from how can they be expected to eventually write and create their own?!

Reading 

The children have all taken their reading books home for the first time tonight. Please find inside their reading record their reading bookmark and their character card. The reading bookmark  is to live in their reading record and can help as a prompt for things you can do at home to support your child with their reading. There are things to look out for that Mrs Crilley and I look out for when we hear the children read each week, that would be helpful if parents could also look out for too. Please feel free to use these prompts when you are writing parent comments in the reading records. Most children have picture books although some have a book focusing on sounds. 

.Please click the link below to see one of our Reception children from last year reading one of the picture books- showing us all how its done telling us the most fantastic story that flows beautifully. 

Reading a picture book

With regards the picture books -try to get your child to look at the whole picture first before they start saying what is happening so they can have a go at telling a story that flows rather than just needing prompting on every page. If they can make links to things they know or have seen before fantastic. Sometimes your child might need the story "told" to them first before they have a go and then they can  see how its done and can pick up on overviews of "where they are at now" or"what they are doing" that they may not have noticed before.
