Postal Course: Blending Skills

(Course Ref: BLS)


What does the course cover?

The course provides lots of fun practice at blending, starting with 3-letter (cvc) words (e.g. mat), and gradually progressing to longer words which have consonant blends at both the beginning and end (e.g. crust, stilt). It also includes some work on blending simple digraphs (letter combinations making new sounds, e.g. sh, ch, th) and on spelling skills.

You can learn, with your child, how to blend effectively, enabling you to support their early reading.
