Reading & Phonics

Letter Sounds

Help your child to learn the sounds the letters make not the letter names. Below is a link that demonstrates how each sound is taught.

Alien Reading

Following our previous success with Karate Reading, Pirate Reading and Explorer Reading..... this year we introduce ALIEN READING!

Designed as a way of encouraging your child to read at home, Alien Reading sees children train to become a Space Explorer, then launch into space to 'photograph' aliens from a wide range of planets. 

Your child has to read their normal reading book on 25 different occasions at home to receive their Space Explorer License and Space Map in assembly. From then on, every 10 reads will see them collect a different alien from their class teacher. There are 20 aliens to collect, and any child who collects them all will receive a small prize at the end of the school year.

So get reading and get collecting those aliens!
