The children have all been given a red, green or purple guided reading book based on their phonic knowledge. We read these each day and aim to build fluency and the ability to read using Fred in your Head (without sounding out). Some of the sounds may be unfamiliar at first but we are continuing with our daily phonics teaching and will focus on "special friends", two letters which work together to make one sound such as "sh" or "ay". We will also continue to practise the red words each day. Thank you for all the reading practise you do at home; it really does make a difference. It is lovely to see the children's confidence develop and to hear that they see themselves as "readers".
