Phonics and Reading

Phonics and Reading 

In our Phonics, we use Twinkl Phonics to deliver high quality Phonics lessons. Each lesson follows a key process to ensure children are successful in their learning. The lesson begins with a revision session (to revise pervious learning) and then new learning is introduced. The children are then given opportunities to read and write words linked to the new learning and then read a sentence where this learning is applied. Throughout the day, they are then provided with opportunities in all areas to 'bump' into their learning. This includes opportunities in Guided Reading, Provision and Adult Led Activities. 

 

In our Reading, we currently use a reading scheme called Pearson Bug Club. The scheme has a comprehensive collection of high quality reading books for the children to use in school. We use these texts as a basis for our learning and complete a mixture of Whole Class Reading and Reading Carousal activities. Also, we ensure the children cover texts such as: fiction, non-fiction, plays and poetry. This is to develop children's comprehension skills and enable them to become life long readers. 

 

 Pearson bug club also has an online element which you can access at home. You may have used this reading resource during online learning and are aware that it has lots of books which you can read at home.

 

In your child’s reading record, there is a login in and password so your child can access this resource at home. Each child has been issued a new password. The website is: www.activelearnprimary.co.uk - there is a digital link below you may use. If you have any issues with your child’s login and/or password, please speak to your child’s teacher – thank you!

 

Phonics Resources

In Reception, the children will explore Level 2 - 4 in Twinkl Phonics. They will also be given opportunities to explore Level 1 and develop their phonemic awareness. Below, there are resources which you can use at home to support your child's reading development.

Reading Information

This is an information booklet linked to the KS1 Reading Skill Vipers. These are the types of questions which your child will be asked during their reading. We have provided it here for you to use at home as well. Not all of them are used in EYFS and if you do use them at home you may want to focus on Retrieval and Explaining. If you have any questions or queries about this, please see the video on the Learning Resource Center or email your class teacher - thank you!

Reading Vipers

Rhino Readers

As part of our Twinkl Phonics provision, your child will also receive a digital book each week. This will be a Rhino Reader book and this will directly link to the sounds they have learnt in the week. You will receive a sticker with an access code on it. If you are having issues accessing the book, please speak with your child's teacher - thank you.
