A letter will be issued today that sums up all the information you need to know about supporting your children at home with phonics and how we teach it in school with our new scheme.
How else can I develop my child’s language?
Children will have a large vocabulary if they are part of a ‘talk-a-lot’ family:
use every opportunity to talk with your child throughout the day – meal times, playing together, bath time
use new and ambitious vocabulary e.g. miserable instead of sad, stroll instead of walk
speak to your child in complete sentences
make up stories together - there’s no need to write it down.
Some people asked us what resources they can buy to support their child’s reading and writing at home?
