We have attached below a flyer for a very special concert and activities, called Chimpanzees of Happy Town that are taking place at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh on Saturday 17 February 2018.
Scottish Chamber Orchestra Family Concerts are an excellent way for younger children to experience a live orchestra and to try out any musical instrument they would like. There’s also a chance to meet and take a selfie with our presenter from children’s TV, Chris Jarvis!
As with all languages some of our most common words in English are those associated with its grammar.
Some of these words are also among the trickiest to read straight from the page. So it is worthwhile spending time practicing reading these words with your child.
To be able to progress to fluent and simple reading it is vital that a child knows these common words.
You can support that learning at home with the sounds below and the other resources in our phonics resource pages.
(please note, this page is not finished. Lots more common words will be added soon, including female pronouns. These words simply happened to be in block 1 processed.)
