Magic bean Phonics!
Why not try this at home to help your child with their reading and writing skills?! Write some letters onto dry Butter beans. (We used s,a,t,p,i,n) check your child recognises each letter and can make that sound, now play with the beans to ‘blend’ the sounds together to make a word! How many words can you make? Can you ‘segment’ the word and split it up back into each sound?
Why not try making some funny nonsense (alien) words?! Have fun!!
