Reading in Reception 

How are we teaching your child to read in school? 

  • Daily phonic sessions – children learn four new phonemes (sounds a week)
  • Daily keep up interventions for any children who need extra help to secure teaching
  • Three reading sessions each week:

                Session 1: Decoding – reading known words and sounding out

                                           unknown words

                Session 2: Prosody – reading with meaning and expression

                Session 3:  Comprehension – talking about what we have read

  • Daily story time-we read books to the children that they cannot read themselves
  • Daily singing and sharing of rhymes and poems


How you can help at home?

  • Listen to your child read their reading book each day (5 mins)
  • Read a story to your child as often as possible (every day if you can)
  • Play games like, “I spy with my little eye a b-u-s.........a t-r-ee.”
  • Talk lots!
