In the first couple of weeks Reception will be taking part in lots of fun phonics activities together. They will explore rhyme, initial sounds and blending through lots of hands on activities, both indoors and outdoors! We will then begin to focus on learning the sounds the letters of the alphabet make and use these sounds to begin reading words and sentences. We will put the sounds that we are focusing each week on here for you to have a look at.
This year in their phonics sessions, Nursery will learn more about sounds in the environment, rhythm, rhyme, oral blending, songs, stories and much more! They will take part in lots of exciting, hands on activities to help them learn more!
