How can phonics help my child learn to read?

Phonics education is all about teaching children the sounds that letters make, and how to combine those sounds to form words. It's a crucial foundation for building strong literacy skills. It has been shown to improve reading accuracy, fluency, comprehension, and overall enjoyment of reading. Have a look at the National Literacy Trust and what they have to say here!

Why is phonics education so important? Well, research has shown that children who learn phonics in their early years are more likely to become confident readers. They're better able to decode and understand unfamiliar words, which allows them to read more complex texts. This helps them gain a deeper understanding of the world around them.
