1 Literacy in ReceptionReading ELG: Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.Writing ELG: Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.
2 There are 6 phases in total, phases 1 - 4 are taught in Reception Letters and SoundsDuring the Foundation Stage your children are taught how to read and write using the Letters and Sounds teaching programme.There are 6 phases in total, phases are taught in ReceptionPhase 1This supports the development of speaking and listening skills, which are crucial for children to make a good start on reading and writing. Children are encouraged to 'tune in' to different sounds and experience a variety of language and talking opportunities.
3 Phase 2Most children in the Reception Year will be working through Phase 2 and beyond, but this depends entirely on their particular level of development. This phase introduces children to letters and the sounds that they make.We call this 'Phonics'.
4 Let's explain......Phoneme - the smallest unit of sound in speechGrapheme - the written representation of a phoneme.Graphemes can be made from 1, 2 3 or more letters working together to make one sound.The children are taught to give the sound when shown the grapheme (written letter) and to find the grapheme when given the sound.Children are taught how toblend sounds together (c - a - t = cat)segment words (cat = c - a - t)These are the skills they need for reading and writing.
