Help and Resources

A little guide to supporting your child...


Below are some resources to support you when helping your child to read and write. Although I will be doing a live phonics session with your child each day, you may find these resources helpful when supporting your child in a focused activity.


May I suggest that when your child is engaging in any reading or writing activity, their sound mat is always accessible for them to refer to, please don’t be afraid to tell your child if a letter is round the wrong way or the diagraph is round the wrong way, this is all part of the learning process, however do try to do it in a positive way.


If your child is struggling on a specific sound, use the sound mat and picture as a prompt, for example “f, f, flower”, “ck, ck, rocket”, this may help to jog their memory. Below are annotated sound mats if you are unsure of the connection and videos of me saying each sound for phase 2 and 3.


I have also listed a number of weblinks that include a range of things such as games, reading materials and phonics practise, which can be explored as and when you wish to do so.
