Ruth's Blog: Show parents what Reception children can do



Few books at home, no magnetic letters on the fridge?

Win parents’ support from the very beginning. 

Show off what their children know in a short parents’ assembly every week.

  1. Read a story aloud that your children can join in with.

  2. Do a mini-speed-sounds lesson so children can show off the sounds they’ve learnt.

  3. Play Fred Talk games – and get the parents to join in.

Each week, show the children’s progress – new books and new sounds. (And, soon how to blend sounds into words.)

Have copies of the books and speed sounds they can borrow.
