In Year 1 we have a strong focus on reading and phonics. Below is a list of all phonic 'sounds'. Phonics can appear daunting but there is lots of resources on YouTube and also parents and carers currently have free access to Phonics Play. If you a wondering how to fill a quiet moment nothing is more beneficial than reading. We understand how busy you all are. Allow your child to have a look at their book independently. They may be able to decipher things independently and they will be so proud showing you what wonderful readers the are.
Below are what we call alien words or nonsense words. These allow the children to further practise the sounds they know with made up words. If you are working on a particular sound with your child you can create your own nonsense words for them to practise with; they could even help you.
