Tapestry Parent Workshop

Phonics

To help you assist your child with their phonics, we have attached two videos below - one shows the correct way to say each sound, and the other shows our jolly phonics songs that the children learn as part of their lessons. We are thrilled with the progress that the children are making with their sound books and we thank you for your support at home. As they begin to get reading books, we ask you to encourage them with simple words that can be sounded out, and help them with some of the trickier vocabulary that they won't yet be familiar with. Let them make up their own stories and use the picture clues to help them decipher the words. If you can sign the yellow reading record each time you hear them at home we can then change their books on a Thursday. The children are also making good use of their orange sound books and practicing writing out their sounds - this is a fabulous way to help them become independent writers!
