Supporting your child's learning

When school and parents work in partnership to support learning - this is a very powerful combination


We use the ELS scheme to support the teaching of phonics - this helps children to read and spell. Here is a link to an explanation of what ELS is .

How can I help at home?

Practising the sounds

  • You can help your child practise the sounds they have been learning at school. Download the charts linked above (under What order are the sounds taught in?) so you can see the list of sounds in the order they’ll be taught. You can show these to your child along with the picture to help them remember.


  • After children learn to read some sounds separately, they can start blending them together to form simple words. Take a look at the video below for ideas on how you can practise word blending with your child. 

Reading decodable books

  • Your child will bring home reading books with words that use the sounds they have been learning that week. You may hear these reading books called ‘decodable books’. Use the prompts inside the front and back covers to enjoy the book together and help your child practise reading

Beneath are links to some videos to support the pronunciation of pure sounds.
