When your child starts school, they will learn to use phonics.

Phonics teaches children to read individual letters and groups of letters by saying the sounds they make. They will learn how to blend the sounds to make whole words.

E.g. If a child knows the sounds for t, p, a and s, they can build up to the words "tap", "pat", "pats", "taps" and "sat".

Most adults weren’t taught to use phonics when they were at school. But Mehnaz is here to help! In her videos, she teaches you about phonics, so you can support your child's learning at home.

The Fantastic Phonics videos were created by Mehnaz and Dee, who are Read On Nottingham Literacy Champions.
