Learning to read: supporting your child at home

Learning to read is one of the most important skills that your child will develop over the next few years. The more support and encouragement that you can offer your child, the more likely that he or she will progress with enthusiasm and ease.

We are using the Read Write Inc. teaching programme, which is a step-by-step phonics programme to introduce children to the letters and sounds (the alphabetic code) that are the foundation of all reading and writing.

To reinforce the teaching in school, your child may bring home some books to share with you. 

 

Should you wish to buy any extra books or resources to support your child, you can search for Read Write Inc. flashcards and resources.
