Want to Help Your Child Catch Up in Reading?
Your child might have been diagnosed with a learning difficulty, a teacher might have raised concerns, or you have noticed something is amiss with your child’s reading and/or spelling.
Our Catch-up at Home Packs are here to help!
We give you every tool you need to get back to basics using the research-proven reading and spelling methodology of Synthetic Phonics:
- The Power Pack – games and activities for you to conduct 10-15 minute daily, one-to-one sessions with your child. Tackles difficulties with phoneme knowledge, blending, segmenting, automaticity and fluency with any set of phonemes.
- Practice Books – removes all the stresses of a story, characters, grammar and storyline to your little one’s headspace to concentrate on decoding. Like learning to swim – we don’t start off in the deep end we start in the shallow end, practising our stroke. This is what the Practice Books are doing – they are our phonics floaties!
- Decodable Stories – build confidence by using these 100% decodable stories whilst expanding comprehension and vocabulary.
