The children will have a Sound Book to revise daily. Once they are able to blend and segment, they will be issued with a word box, which is refreshed every week. Word boxes contain a set of phonetically plausible words and 'tricky' words from the Jolly Phonics programme. Through Class Dojo, I may set maths 'learning conversations' to have at home with your child, focused on the topics of the week.
Children are given one reading book and one 'reading for pleasure' book (selected from the school library) each week. This book is matched to their individual phonic ability. We have a range of books which complement our Jolly Phonics programme, beginning with picture books. We offer a Phonics Workshop in the Autumn Term, where we will explain more about how we teach phonics and reading in Reception Class.
