Reading Information

 

We want every child to love reading and we spend a lot of time each day teaching your child to read and reading to them.

 

At home we ask that you read together and enjoy the time you spend with a book.  Do not worry if your child does not want to read it to you or does not appear to be ‘able’ to read.  It is very early in the year and it is important that you have fun reading.  If you can model reading by segmenting the words and blending the sounds then you are teaching your child the skills to read.  

 

Your teachers are always here to speak to so if you have any concerns just speak to us or ask for a phone call.  Please just read the books we send to your child and we hope reading together can be a special family time.

If you would like to watch a video to help you read with your child the link below has excellent blending skills demonstrated:   https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-age-4-5-reception/

 

To teach children to spell we teach them to segment words and a great link to show you what we do is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5PqB-ndqkU

 

 

Please see below for a list of the steps we follow to teach your child to read.

 

How we teach your child to read:

  1.  Look at the front and back cover of the book and talk about what it could be about.
  2. On each page talk about the pictures first.
  3. Point to the words, starting on the top line moving your finger left to right. 
  4. When you point to the word, sound out each letter.  First sound it out slowly, then sound it out faster so the sounds blend together.  Say the word out loud.  Point to the second word and sound out each letter.  First sound it out slowly, then sound it out faster so the sounds blend together.  Say both words together. 
  5. When you have done this for each word in a sentence then say the whole sentence together.  Discuss what is means.
  6. Move on to the next sentence, segmenting each word.
