Phonics and Reading


In Potter Class, we teach reading and writing using phonics. We use the Letters and Sounds format using Read Write Inc resources. 


The sounds that the children have learnt in class will be added to this page. The words given will be an example of a word your child should be able to read with the new sound in it. 


There are some links below with printable resources you may find useful. 


Please read with your child at least 3x per week to help them practise their new skills. 

All single sounds of the alphabet- look at this link if you want to learn how they are pronounced. 




Below are some suggestions of what you can do at home: 


  • Reading your child a bedtime story - look for their new sounds in the book
  • Are any of your new sounds in your name? 
  • Practising reading skills - phonics book, phonics game, word cards (at least x4 per week) 
  • Practise reading and writing your child's name. 
  • Play listening games e.g. What animal makes this noise? Eye Spy, Can you see the colour .....
