Below are the letters of the alphabet and rhymes to help your child learn how to write each letter.
Practise saying and writing these with your child.
We use them in school.
Learning to read words!
As children learn to read, children are taught individual sounds and then how to link them together to form words.
By the end of Reception your child will be able to blend sounds together.
A CVC word is a word that is made up of a consonant, vowel and consonant sound. Cat, hot, tip, man and hut are all CVC words.
To blend sounds. This means looking at a short word, such as 'tin' and saying the three sounds after each other: 't', 'i', 'n', link the sounds together and say the whole word in one go.
This is a big step for many children and can take time.
Tip: Focus on phonological awareness first.
