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.
We have begun teaching the initial sounds. Below are the sounds your child should know. Please help them to recognise them in their reading books.
All single sounds of the alphabet- look at this link if you want to learn how they are pronounced.
