Reading guide for parents

Do your pupils' parents often struggle to think of what to write in reading records, and find it difficult to think of questions to ask their child whilst reading? If so, we can help! We have produced a completely free 'guide to reading with your child', packed full of samples that adults can write in children's reading records, plus sample questions and more!

Getting parents on board with phonics is crucial to ensuring phonics success for all children. Access a free, editable presentation for parents suitable for phonics evenings, or to access via your school website.

The games on here are brilliant! The children loved playing them this morning and it really engaged them in their phonics practice (without knowing them were!)

Time for Phonics is my go-to for phonics games! I adore the interactive games, they get the children so excited for phonics lessons. The planning and resources are fantastic - they are made by teachers for teachers and they save me so much time. My absolute favourite phonics website!

My daughter loved playing the games! Not just because of the unicorns, I think the bright graphics are really appealing. I liked the fact that it was easy to filter by phase  and select groups of letters for her to practice. I had to promise to let her play again later.
