We use the Read, Write Inc. scheme for teaching phonics. We are learning phonics as a whole class and we also split into two groups for reading and writing. We have now learnt all of the single set 1 single sounds and special friends: sh, ch, th, qu, ck, ss, ll, ff, ng and nk.


This week (4th Dec) we will recap ck and any other set 1 special friends which children still need to know. Please look through the green phonics practice book and make sure your child is confident speed reading all of these sounds. The expectation is to know them all by Christmas. We have learnt red words I, the, put, of and me.


Please sit with your child and help them to form a curly c. This forms the basis for all of the curly letters: a, o, g, d and q. Lots of these letters are not being formed correctly at the moment and habits are forming, so lots of practise at home would be appreciated! Thank you.
