It was fantastic to see so many parents and grandparents attend our Read, Write, Inc bingo session.
The class showed how quickly they could say the first 31 'set one' sounds before showing off how good they are at helping Fred frog with orally blending words such as 'sink', 'cot' and 'pat'. After that they used the magnetic boards to make words, pinching out the sounds before moving the magnetic letters into place. The children sounded out the sounds before 'sweeping' the sounds into one word.
Ladybirds finished by showing the adults how they can read the green words, spotting any 'special friends' such as 'sh' using the same method as the magnetic boards and also doing 'Fred in your head' before saying the word out allowed rather than stating the sounds first.
The children then joined the adults for a couple of games of bingo before taking home a book from BookTrust called The Bumblebear.
