Beanfield Primary School

Learning to blend

During the first few weeks we will assess your child to see which sounds they are confident reading and writing.

They will then start working in smaller groups every day to continue to learn to read new sounds, practice the sounds they know and to blend sounds together to read words. They will continue to have the opportunity to write letter sounds daily.

While your child is learning to blend in school you can help by finding the time for them to read you their phonics book at home.  5 - 10 minutes every day is ideal to support this crucial stage of reading development.

Practice blending the sounds your child is learning in school.

Your child is now learning to blend sounds. Please read the Sound Blending Book with your child to practice blending the sounds. Don’t just read the book once, re-read it multiple times to help your child become fluent blending these sounds.
