Phonics in Reception
Our children receive daily phonics teaching. We follow the Letters and Sounds programme but use some of the Read Write Ink resources and terminology to support this.
In Autumn term 1 we focus on developing strong Phase 1 listening skills. In Autumn term 2 we begin whole class teaching of Phase 2 phonic sounds and skills. Upon completion of Phase 2 we split into smaller groups to teach the children at a pace appropriate to their learning needs.
You can find out more about how we teach phonics in the pdf below.
We embed the use of phonic skills for reading and writing across the curriculum and our learning environment, both indoors and outdoors.
