Phonics and Early Reading for Parents

Thank you to everyone who attended the Phonics and Early Reading talks before half-term. It was great to share just how important early reading is and to clarify how phonics and early reading are taught here at Eleanor Palmer. As requested, here are the slides that Miss Thomson and Mrs Stokes shared.

Although your child will be taught to read at school, you can have a huge impact on their reading journey by continuing their practice at home so thank you for your support. Here are some video links from our chosen phonics provider, Little Wandle Letters and Sounds, that show the phonics strategies that we teach in school.
