Practicing phonics at home
In the Spring term before children move to Reception class, we work on recognising and naming the set 1 phonics pictures and sounds. You can help your children to practise these at home too.
In addition to learning the pictures, it is important for children to understand how the sounds relate to objects or words. Games such as a sound hunt (e.g. can you find things that start with a “b” sound?) or grouping objects by initial sound are the best way to support this.
To support correct pronunciation of the sounds please watch the video on the RWI website.
