Tips & Ideas
As you read with your child point to each word with your finger showing there is a match between the spoken and written word.
Even very young children enjoy the experience of sitting with you and looking at bright pictures of everyday things they recognise, such as animals or toys. Read a book with your child and talk about the pictures.
Find time to read aloud with your child every day. Typically, parents play an important role in developing this skill showing how important reading is to their daily life.
By selecting 5 words that begin with the same letter, children can learn how to make that letter sound. e.g Cat, Car, Candle, Cake, Castle.

Rooted in the concept of sending and receiving letters Postman Pat is perfectly aligned with reading and literacy. It is through this strong connection we have partnered with the National Literacy Trust to help promote reading to children across the UK.
The National Literacy Trust is an independent charity that changes lives through literacy.
To make a real difference, whole communities need to work together. We help to make this happen by linking home, school and the wider community to inspire learners and create opportunities for everyone.
We provide free books for children in disadvantaged areas to choose and keep. We promote reading using male reading role models, from Postman Pat to local dads. We support schools in developing whole-school reading communities and encourage reading in the home. Literacy changes lives.
