 We hope you had a fantastic summer and look forward to seeing you all!

Everyone has settled back into preschool really well and we are already getting to know each other and enjoy our time together.


 Early years phonics workshop (letters and sounds)

We attended a workshop at Chandlers ford infant school and here are some key points to help your children at home;

 Forming letters

  • when your child is ready encourage correct pencil grip.
  • use only captitals in the correct place i.e. at beginning of names, lower case formation should be encouraged.
  • encourage and praise all writing and mark making.

being successful

  • encourage talk
  • have fun with phonics
  • read to and with your child
  • encourage mark making and writing
  • praise your child 


Remember...children need to use letter sounds not names to decode words.

  • Read lots even when out and about e.g. shop names, road signs
  • singing
  • play sound games
  • story telling
  • i spy games
  • talk, talk and more talk
