Let’s talk phonics

April 24, 2017

We explain some of the phonics techniques children use when learning to read in our video guide – and how you can help your child at home!

Since 2006, children have been taught to read using ‘synthetic phonics’.  In this video guide, we explain the techniques of blending and segmenting which help children to decode words – and give you some handy tips you can use when helping your child learn to read at home!

 

We hope you found it useful!

At Explore Learning, we tailor everything to suit your child’s specific needs and inspire a passion for reading and writing (even for the less appealing spelling and grammar – we deliver it with pizazz!).

Get in touch with us today to find out how we can help your child be fearless with phonics.
