Phonics

In Reception, children will have a daily 30 minute teaching session and learn a new sound each day.

We begin phonics in Reception using Phase 1 of the letters and sounds program to develop children’s listening and oral blending skills. Once children are secure in this aspect of phonics, we teach Phase 2-4 using the RWI program throughout the year. 

We assess the children’s sound recognition and segmenting/blending skills each half term and plan phonics sessions based on this. This allows teachers and teaching assistants to work in more focused groups throughout the year to support and challenge children as necessary.
