Update From Percy.
Hi it is Percy here again!
Last term in Reception we had lots of fun being toy makers, explorers and even Chinese dragons. We had, a toy shop and a jungle in the classroom.
Now that the summer term has arrived we are looking forward to finding out lots about minibeasts. I don’t think Mrs Bowman, Mrs Thompson and Mrs Hulton are looking forward to looking at spiders and worms. I am really excited though because I love finding out about animals.
Mrs Bowman will have to get her tissues ready for the end of the year when Reception get ready to move to Year One. She might ask Mr Southern if they can stay in Reception for another year! Until then, I am sure we are going to have lots of fun exploring more books, taking part in more maths challenges, painting and lots more.
Anyway I had better go and check Mrs Bowman has not started crying already.
Reading Books and Phonics in Reception.
In reception we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' guidance. Alongside this we use 'Phonics Play'. This has a website with lots of useful resources and also includes lesson plans which are adapted by the school. In addition, when we introduce each phoneme we use the 'Jolly Phonics' actions as a lot of children are familiar with some of these from their nursery.
We have a variety of reading schemes in reception that we run alongside each other using book banded levels. We do this in order to provide a greater variety in books.
The schemes we use are:
Oxford Reading Tree
Collins Big Cat
Ginn Reading 360
Talk a Story
Read with Biff Chip and Kipper
Usborne Very First Reading
Usborne Phonics Readers
