All of the children In Class One are flying like an eagle in their phonics learning!

The Reception children have shown great determination, perseverance and have developed a wonderful love for reading since starting phase 2 phonics in September. They have all believed in themselves and each other, shown a positive attitude towards their learning, and their achievement in phonics has been amazing already! Well done Reception continue to 'believe and achieve!'

The Reception children are learning Phase 2 phonics. They have all made super progress in their reading development this term! So far the children have learnt the sounds s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d,g,o,c,k,ck,e,u,r,b,h,ff,ff,l,ll and ss. These are all of the phase 2 sounds! The children have started to develop their sounding out and blending skills to read simple words and sentences with these sounds in. They have been learning to sight read the phase 2 tricky words I, the, into, to, no and go. We have also worked hard on developing our letter formation and using our phonics skills to write simple words and to spell. The children will continue to learn the phase 2 sounds and develop their reading skills through lots of hands on activities, both indoors and outdoors! 

Below are some links to helpful websites, activities and rhymes that will help the reception children to continue to develop their reading skills with you at home.
