Reading at home is essential to your child's learning development. You should listen to or read with your child daily for at least 15 minutes.





Foster the love of Reading!



Each day the children will learn a new letter and sound during phonics. You can help your child at home by asking them which letter they have learnt today and practice saying it and writing it with them. 


Jolly Phonics Phase Three

Jolly Phonics is a program designed to help children learn the name and sounds of letters. Before children can read or start to read they need to have some understandaning of letter sounds and this is a fun way of learning them.
