Help your child to read and write

1st April 2016

Say the sound: sssss
Write a big squiggly S in the air with your finger, and then on the page.

Simple instructions such as those above, as well as delightful and amusing illustrations can make a child's first attempt to read and write so much more enjoyable and rewarding. The activities in our new Wipe-Clean Phonics series are designed to help children learn the letter sounds, and the wipe-clean pages let them write the letters again and again.
