HELPING YOUR CHILD TO BLEND LETTER SOUNDS FOR READING

 

We are pleased to see that so many children are learning to recognise letter sounds and are beginning to use them in their reading and writing.

 

Below we have included short videos to help you when you are reading at home with your child.

  • In the first video we model  how we encourage children to practice blending letter sounds.
  • In the second video we show you how we teach children to blend sounds in words and read sentences in their 'Pocket Rocket' books.

If you have any queries about supporting your child with reading, please do not hesitate to ask your child's class teacher.
