Reception

Welcome to Reception

Our Reception children will have either made the big jump from Nursery or be starting school for the first time. For some children, this may be the first time they are in full time education. We want to make the children’s time in Reception as exciting, stimulating and fun as possible so they develop a love of learning, which they will take with them throughout their educational career.

Phonics

At Park End Primary School, we follow the Read Write Inc scheme to deliver our phonics and reading lessons.

In phonics, children are taught to recognise the single letter sounds and then special friends, which as 2 or 3 letters together that make 1 sound eg sh, ay, igh. They learn a phrase to help learn the sounds. The sounds are divided into set 1, set 2 and set 3.

Children are taught to read and spell decodable words containing sounds that they have been taught. Children will be using Fred Talk and Fred in their Head to support with their reading.

Fred Talk allows the children to say the sounds out loud to support with their blending.

Fred in the Head encourages children to say the sounds in their head, blend them and then say the word. This helps to develop their fluency.

In reading lessons, children read books that match their phonic ability. They will read the same book 3 times.

Read 1: Children will be introduced to the book, practice new words, red words and then read the book.

Read 2: Reread the book using Fred in their Head

Read 3: Reread book – should be speedy and then answer questions linked to the book.

Children will bring reading books home that match their phonic ability. They are encouraged to read the book 2 times before it is changed.
