We use a system called Cued Articulation to support our teaching of phonics. Children quickly become familiar with the signs. The link below is not wonderful quality, but explains very clearly how it works.
Children will be reading Bug Club books in class and these can also be accessed on-line. Daily reading is essential to support the children across the curriculum. Children will also be given passwords to Mathletics.
