Please watch the clip in the web link below which will help your child to correctly pronounce each phonic sound. Not only will this prepare them for their phonics screening later this year but will also help develop reading skills.
Why encourage Reading?
Regular reading and listening to stories at bedtime has a clear link to success at school in all areas of the curriculum. Albert Einstein was once asked by a mother what she could do to help her son to be successful. His reply was to read fairy tales. When she explained that she hoped her son would become a scientist like Einstein his reply was to read more fairy tales. The most important thing you can do to support your child at home is to read to them and listen to them read.
