Phonics Phase 2

Home Learning 


Home Learning tasks are uploaded to Tapestry each Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. Reading books are sent home three times a week with the expectation that each book will be shared with an adult at home at least twice. Flash cards with the phonic sounds we are learning are sent home so that these can be practised at home. We also send home 'Rabbit' cards with our tricky words on for these to be practised at home too.
