  • Grapheme mats that the children can use to identify the sounds they need for their writing
  • A link to our e-book library (ask your child's teacher for a copy of their login details if you have misplaced them)

E-Book Library

Follow the link below to access our e-book library! You will find copies of all of our phonics and early reading books. Your child's teacher will assign your child a set of books that are matched to their phonic knowledge (as shown through regular assessment).


It is important that the children regularly read phonically matched books in order to develop fluency and confidence. In order to do this successfully, please read each book 3 times, using the prompts on the back cover of each book to help direct each read. Please follow the order given in the Reading Record.
