Primary Academy

Supporting Your Child

On entry to Seathorne Primary Academy, whether in Nursery or Reception, your child will be working within the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

If they enter in Y1 and above they will be working within the National Curriculum.

Many of you will want to support your children at home and one of the best ways for you to do this is by reading with your child. This can include reading to your child and discussing the characters, what might happen next, what character they like / do not like and discussing why etc. Practise reading with intonation and expression too - this helps to develop their understanding and comprehension of what has been read.

At the Seathorne Primary Academy, we will support your child’s early reading by using the Little Wandle: Letters and Sounds revised programme. Click here for more information about this programme.

You will find videos showing how pure sounds are pronounced, how we teach reading by blending as well as how we help children to say sounds, and form them in writing correctly.

You can download resources to support your child's phonics development at home.

Please also speak to your child's class teacher if you would like any additional support with reading or phonics.
