Learning to read - phonics
Supporting with phonics can seem tricky as the way the children are taught to say the sounds may feel different to when you were learning to read. We highly recommend these video clips as a good place to start to give you confidence when supporting your children.
Number bonds are the different ways to make the same total. We usually think of this as number bonds to ten, but actually it's useful for children to know the number bonds to lots of totals. Ten is a good place to start and you can use Numicon as a really visual way to see how the number ten is made. Watch this video for an explanation of how you can use Numicon as a daily part of supporting your child's learning at home. We have also added the printable version of Numicon.
