Reading Workshops  - November 2019

Here are the materials shared at our Reading Workshops held in November for parents.

Our youngest children begin their adventure in the world of reading with the aid of a reading scheme. This provides a structure, progressive approach with texts of increasing complexity to help build and develop reading skills.  

Big Cat’s new Phonics for Letters and Sounds is a series of beautifully presented books fully aligned to Letters and Sounds and is banded from Lilac to Turquoise. Pupils can enjoy engaging stories and explore exciting non-fiction topics whilst practising and consolidating all of the required phonemes and graphemes throughout the phases. Reading notes are provided inside every book, providing clear and simple support for reading including modelling fluency, learning objectives, phonic practice and vocabulary extension activities for ‘after reading’.

The Bug Club Phonics books support the teaching of phonics in the classroom. Bug Club is a vibrant mix of fiction and non-fiction, the books are all aligned with Letters and Sounds and help children to build on their decoding skills in a fun way. The main focus is long i, a, e, o; alternative spellings, for example, eer, ere, ear; tch, ch and introducing c(ial), ss(ion, t(ion. Inside cover notes encourage children to talk about the book and practise the focus graphemes and common words. These activities will also be helpful for teaching assistants and parents in extending the reading experience and introducing children to comprehension.
