Literacy

We will teach 4 sounds per week and introduce 'tricky words' alongside that the children will have to learn by sight.  

 

Below are activities to support your child's Literacy skills. 

Each day begin by recapping sounds and tricky words they have already been introduced to.

As they build this up, you could use a timer to see how many they can read each day in 1 minute.

 

This week is a recap week so there are no new sounds.
