Phonics and letter formation
As you all my know we use two different schemes when learning phonics and letter formation. We use Jolly Phonics to learn the letter sound. (This is the sound that the letter makes not the name of the letter.) We then use Read Write Inc. to form our letter sounds.
Below we have added some useful links and resources when helping your child with their phonics and letter formation.
It is really important that you keep reading at home. Whether this be looking through story books and retelling the story in their own words, using a range of different questioning or reading simple CVC words or recognising sounds and sign in the environment.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
