Welcome to Reception Class!
Please visit our half termly pages for more information and to view our topic web to see what we are learning about this half term.
Just a few reminders...
Please see the 'End of Reception Expectations' document below for more information about what your child will be learning throughout the year and the skills they will need by the end of Reception.
Any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
We learn to read through teaching the children Phonics following the 'Letters and Sounds' scheme from the government. In Reception we try to make these sessions as practical as possible, fun and engaging through the use of actions and songs to help us learn each phoneme. These songs can be found on Youtube under "Jolly Phonics Songs" and I am sure the children will love singing them with you.
We have daily phonics sessions to revisit sounds we have learned, learn new sounds and tricky words. Each session includes daily reading and writing at a suitable level for your child. Reading books are sent home to encourage children to read at home, they are sent at a level that they can improve their reading without being too tricky. We encourage parents to read as often as possible at home, re-visiting the same book throughout the week to increase fluency and sight recognition and to chat about the story, setting, characters and even predictions and feelings/emotions. There are suggested questions and activities inside the front cover of your child's reading diary for further information. If needed, please speak to me if you would like two books sent home weekly.
The video below shows how to clearly articulate the sounds as part of our Phonics and hopefully will be useful.
Please do not hesitate to come and speak to me if you have any further questions.
