Reading and getting ready for phonics

Top Tips for supporting your child to get ready for phonics


*Singing nursery rhymes and songs with them.


*Listening carefully and talking about the sounds you hear all around you.


*Reading stories to them. Ones with rhymes or alliterations or bits that repeat are brilliant for training their ear. They are likely to want the same story over and over again and this is great for getting them ready for phonics too.


*Musical instrument play.
