Uniform

Here at Holy Family we pride ourselves on our smart appearances. Please ensure children come to school dressed appropriately and wearing correct school uniform. 

 

 

Please do not hesitate to ask me questions regarding your child and their education or if you require a general update on how your child/ren are doing. Please ask for Miss Tomlinson and I will ensure I make time to meet/speak with you. 

Many thanks!

We are looking forward to beginning our amazing learning journey with you all! 

The FS2 Team!

Phonics

 

The phonics programme we follow is called Read Write Inc. (RWI). In reception we are beginning to blend sounds together to create words.

It is really important that the children practise blending sounds together to create words so please blend, blend, blend with your children at home. 

Playing simple listening games can help your children understand phonics a lot more. Asking your child 'Can you get your c-oa-t?' 'Sit on the ch-air.' etc. will help them understand 'fred talk' or 'sounding out'.

Below is a video to help you pronounce 'pure' sounds. 

 

Information for Parents: How to say the sounds

Handwriting

In FS2 we use pre-cursive handwriting.

Below is a copy of the pre-cursive traceable letters we use and a copy of rhyme cards we use to help your child remember correct letter formation.
