Phonics and Reading

Phonics and Reading 

In our Phonics, we currently follow Letters and Sounds 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 words linked to the new learning then spell them. After this, they move on read a sentence and then write their own linked sentence. Throughout the day, they are then provided with opportunities in all areas to 'bump' into their learning. 

 

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. 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!

 

English Information Videos

In the link below, there are videos which explain some key information for Reading, Phonics and Writing. If you would like anymore information, please contact your child's teacher via their email address. 

Phonics Resources

This document has been created to provide you with different phonics activities you can complete at home. It also has a glossary which explains key vocabulary you may come across during phonics sessions. 

Here are a range of sound mats you can use at home. In Reception, we are currently looking at Phase 2 single sounds and learning to blend. 

Useful Websites 
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!
