We have had a fabulous start to the school year.

 

This week we have begun to learn some letter sounds.  (m, a, s, d, t) You can practice these at home too.

This week we have met Fred.

He helps us with our phonics. 

 

Speaking like Fred helps children to understand that words are made up of sounds. You can use Fred Talk at home to help children practise blending sounds together.
