English – reading and writing

Tuesday 04 October 2022

We have made a strong start to our English lessons since coming back after the summer holidays. Phonics lessons started on day one and we have been using our phonics to support writing too.

We use a ‘grapheme mat’ (letters and groups of letters and the sounds they make) to support our reading and writing.

In phonics, we learn how the same letters make different sounds and different sounds are made by the same letters! It can be very confusing.

Help at home by reading with your child regularly. If you have any problems logging in to the eBooks, contact your child’s class teacher.
