Want to support your child with their phonics even further? 

As a school, we use a phonics programme called Sounds-Write. Click on the link below to take you to additional ideas and materials that Sounds-Write have produced.







As we are currently unable to change your child's reading books, why not look at the e-books on Oxford Owl? All of the books can be decoded using phonics and many of them are ones we use in school.
