Thank you to all parents who joined us for our phonic workshops. We demonstrated to parents one element of our phonics lesson – using phonic sounds to blend and read a word. Children used magnetic boards to make the words and then pointed to each letter (left to right) to read the words; b-a-g bag, l-e-t let etc. We would ask that parents support their children on phonics every night – using their phonics to read a word, without support. Remember that if your child can simply say the word, without blending the sound first, that is fantastic and they can simply say the word, instead of sounding it out.
