Welcome From Percy.

 

Hi it is Percy here!

 Lots of the Reception children will have met me when they visited my class in July. Mrs Bowman and Mrs Hulton have been busy over the summer, preparing the classroom ready for our autumn term. They have been telling me how excited they are about the new year. Jo Jo, Wizard,  the reading bears and myself are also super excited about the year ahead. I have to let you in to a little secret. I find learning a little bit tricky sometimes. The teachers never mind though because they say they can see how much I have tried. Maybe some of the new Reception children will be able to help me this year.

Mrs Bowman has lots of exciting things planned for the term. We will be taking part in a community project, making a scarecrow, learning about ourselves, family, how to stay healthy, finding lots of creative ways to represent fireworks and lots of other exciting things. 

Anyway, I had better fly off because me and my friends have promised the teachers we will tidy up our part of the classroom before the start of the year. It is getting close now so we had better make a start.

See you all soon. Let's have an amazing year together.

Phonics and Reading Books in Reception.

Phonics - We deliver 'Essential Letters and Sounds' (from the start of the Summer Term 2022). 

Essential Letters and Sounds is a Systematic Synthetic Phonics (SSP) programme which has been validated by the Department of Education

There are two links below which lead you to videos which help demonstrate how to pronounce each sound (phoneme) correctly. This is then followed by a PowerPoint which introduces the 'Essential letters and Sounds' scheme and gives parents an overview to the scheme.

Demonstration Video - The video below demonstrates myself and last years Reception class sounding out a word using the ELS spelling sequence. This is a strategy that the scheme uses to encourage the children to listen to all the sounds (phonemes) they can hear in words before they write them. Children will not have to do this with every word they write. However, if there is a word they are struggling with or in the early stages of writing, this is a strategy we will now be using throughout EYFS and KS1. I apologise for it being quite quiet. We could not get it any louder. I am sure your child will be able to help though as they are becoming more familiar with this strategy already.

Reading - The reading scheme/books that we use are produced by Oxford University Press and are linked to the programme mentioned above.

Children are assigned physical books and eBooks from Oxford Owl weekly. www.oxfordowl.co.uk 

Children have their own individual logins to enable them to access books that have been specifically assigned to them in correspondence with their phonics learning in school. The decodable books provide opportunities to practice the letters and sounds taught that week and/or revise previously taught sounds. 

Below are some examples of the range of books available:

Little Blending Books     Words Sparks    Project X Phonics     Hero Academy     Hero Academy Non-fiction     Alien Adventures              Traditional Tales             Story Sparks and inFact
