Your child will be bringing home a reading book to share with you at home. They need to practice reading this by segmenting and blending the words using their phonics knowledge. In phonics we have learnt phase 2 sounds.
It is really important that the children say the pure sounds, like in this video.
In our phonics lessons we learn how to segment and blend words with these sounds in. This is what they need to do with their reading book at home.
For example, the word 'cat'. We would read this by saying c-a-t, cat. The video here explains this in more detail.
