Phonics and spellings

Parent Webinar - Highfield Hall Primary School

This is "Parent Webinar - Highfield Hall Primary School" by MonsterPhonics on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.
This is our workshop for parents. It will help you to understand phonics and explains all about Monster Phonics helps support your child's learning.
Please note-there is no sound for 40 seconds. It's not your volume controls!

We use Monster Phonics in school, but you can still use other websites and resources to help your child's developing phonic knowledge and skills. A really useful website is where your child can play lots of blending and segmenting games that they really enjoy.


Please practise your child's spellings each week, these can be found in their Monster Phonics spelling book and will be tested each Wednesday.


In addition, it is really helpful if children know how to spell a range of common exception or 'tricky words'. These songs are a fun way of helping your child remember the common spellings they will use regularly in their writing.

When learning spellings, we use a wide range of strategies and games. One of our favourites is to write on each other’s backs for then to guess which word was written!
