Early Words Together

‘Early Words together at three' supported by the National Literacy trust, is a programme  for families of three to four year old children designed to build parental confidence, support a positive home learning environment, and develop supportive relationships between the school and families.

The programme consists of five evidence -based activity sessions led by practitioners to build the parents understanding of the communication, language and literacy development of their child and the importance of home learning. To help share key activities and information with parents.  To provide parents with confidence and activity ideas to support their child's development at home.


Phonics teaching
In the early stages phonetic awareness is introduced through specific phonics teaching using the ‘Letters and Sounds’ scheme.  Children begin to recognise high frequency words and make sense of text. For more information
