Helping your child to read at home

 

The Read Write Inc. Phonics approach teaches children to read sets of sounds and then blend them to read words.

 

The books that they read at school will only contain the sounds they’ve already learned, so children learn quickly and confidently.

 

First your child will learn to read:

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds (sounds written with one letter): 
  • m a s d t i n p g o c k u b f e l h r j v y w z x
  •  and sounds written with two letters (your child will call these ‘special friends’): 
  • sh th ch qu ng nk ck
  • Words containing these sounds, by sound-blending, e.g. m–a–t mat, c–a–t cat, g–o–t got, f–i–sh fish, s–p–o–t spot, b–e–s–t best, s–p–l–a–sh splash
  • At school, they will read Read Write Inc. PhonicsSound Blending Books and Red, Green and Purple Storybooks.
Phonics Set 1 Sounds for you to practise at home

What is Fred Talk?

 

The children have been introduced to a toy frog called Fred! Fred can only say the sounds in a word and needs your child to help him read the word. Fred will say the sounds and children will work out the word. For example, Fred will say the sounds c–a–t, and children will say the word cat. This is Fred Talk: sounding out the word.

Have fun with Fred Talk at home!

 

“What a tidy r-oo-m!”

 

“Where’s your c-oa-t?”    

 

“Time for b-e-d!”
