After having such a brilliant conversation with a college who does all the testing for the 6 Year Nets, and passes on the information, I learnt a numbers of trends to be mindful when teaching learners to read.
1. The knowledge of HFW learners in difficult for some.
2. Learners reading all the sounds and not chunking the words out, perhaps its about not knowing how to.
3. Gaps in knowing blends.
This has made me think... using magnetic letters to show chunks, physically moving the words. Continuing to support parents with how we teach reading, running more Reading Together Workshops for parents.
