Helping your child to read and spell

Help your child with their reading and writing
Did you know that …

There are 26 letters of the alphabet but they make 44 sounds.
It is essential that all our pupils know these sounds.  It will enable them to become confident readers and spellers.

The link below offers great support and advice for parents and children. It is vital that we teach the children the correct pronunciations. We are finding that the children have many misconceptions, and are making mistakes from reception right through to Year 6.

Please look at the link below with your child and listen to the pronunciations. You can make a big difference!

Please see your child’s class teacher if you have any questions or would like to learn more.
