Phonics is at the beginning of every child's journey to reading!
Here at Bridgemere we teach our Phonics through Read, Write, Inc and we love it!
There are many resources here you can find to help your child with their phonics at home, especially through these more challenging times.
You can find daily phonics videos on Ruth Miskin's YouTube channel -
There is a quick Teaching a new sound guidence – which will help you to understand to sets to follow.
There are individual sound sheets for each new sound – set 2 and set 3. We recommend one of these as a focus sound each day.
As well as this you will find words which match to the coloured books your child has been bringing home.
Green fred words – these are words your child can read out loud – finding 'special friends' first, then 'fred talk' the words and finally 'say the word' by blending all the sounds together.
Speedy read words – these are words your children should be able to read without finding 'special friends' 'fred talk' 'say the word' – if you are fining your child is struggling to initially just read them then ask them to 'fred in your head' this is where the children will silently look for special friends and fred talk, then ultimately say the word out loud.
Please don't feel over whelmed by the amount upload here, just look for the set of sounds you need and the coloured book words you need.
