Knowledge Organisers

Knowledge organisers contain all the key knowledge and facts your children will be learning in this unit. This will enable you to assist your child's learning at home.

Phonics

In Reception, children will have a daily 30 minute teaching session and learn a new sound each day.

We begin phonics in Reception using Phase 1 of the letters and sounds program to develop children’s listening and oral blending skills. Once children are secure in this aspect of phonics, we teach Phase 2-4 using the RWI program throughout the year. 

We assess the children’s sound recognition and segmenting/blending skills each half term and plan phonics sessions based on this. This allows teachers and teaching assistants to work in more focused groups throughout the year to support and challenge children as necessary.

Below are two booklets from RWI,  that show you how to help and support your childs learning  at home:

RWI - Reading at Home - Booklet 1
RWI - Reading at Home - Booklet 2

Further information and support for parents can be found on the Oxford Owl website.
