Helping your child at home
There are many ways in which you can encourage your child to work well and to ensure a good start. We hope that you will find the following suggestions helpful.

2. We teach reading through the Read Write Inc program. Please try to help your child to sound out the letters in words and then to ‘push’ the sounds together to make a whole word. Help your child to focus on the sounds, rather than the letter names. You can hear how to say the sounds correctly here:
