How will I learn to read?

 

When your child starts school they will have plenty of exposure to books and nursery rhymes. This is something that you can do at home too. Children need to get use to holding a book, turning the pages and talking about what they can see. We will spend time talking about the pictures and asking questions about what they can see and what they think might happen.

The first books that your child will bring home will be picture books without any text. This is so they can build and develop their language skills. 

 

In Studley Green we follow the Sounds Write programme. We will introduce a sets of sounds and children will then use these sounds to practise reading and writing words in fun and interactive way. 

We will then introduce books to go home with sounds, these books will allow your child to " say the sounds read the words". Children can then use this knowledge to ‘de-code’ new words that they hear or see. This is the first important step in learning to read. The most important thing is to make it fun  and engaging.

 

 

 

Parental Involvement

It is so important that your child shares their reading book at home. This helps them to practise their reading skills and develops their vocabulary. At Studley Green we hope that this is practised 4 times a week.

We emphasise the need for parents to take an active role in their child’s education, supporting their reading and encouraging communication through the use of reading diaries.

 

Phonics is a way of teaching children to read quickly and skilfully. They are taught how to:

  • Recognise the sounds that each individual letter makes;
  • Identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make - such as 'ch' or 'ng'; and
  • Blend these sounds together from left to right to make a word
