Reception Phonics Information Session Today we will: Look at the way reading is taught in Reception and KS1. Show you our reading scheme, which has an essential school-home link. Suggest ways you can support your child’s reading at home.
Progression in reading Educational research advocates two methods for teaching reading skills to young children. The partnership of the two processes is important. If they have a large store of high frequency words but their phonic sounds are weak, they will come unstuck on unfamiliar words. A solid phonic base allows more room for language comprehension and in turn, enjoyment of books and reading. Keeping a store of familiar words Applying phonic rules
What does phonics consist of? Letter names (graphemes) Letter sounds (phonemes) For example: letters ‘o’ and ‘r’ together make the /or/ sound. Blending phonemes into words for reading. Segmenting words into phonemes for spelling.
Teaching phonics in school A synthetic approach to teaching phonics skills is considered the best approach to teaching reading and writing with children aged 4 to 7. This is where graphemes (letters) and corresponding sounds are taught just before introducing words containing these letters. To read these words, children are taught to pronounce the individual sounds and then blend them together to form the word.
Example of the synthetic approach Children see a word eg. dog; it is not pronounced for them. They break it into its individual letters (graphemes) and pronounce the corresponding sounds for each letter in turn: /d/ /o/ /g/ They blend the separate phonemes together to form the word.
Early reading at Northleaze At Northleaze, we follow the Letters and Sounds framework. Reception integrate Jolly Phonics. In Reception and Key Stage 1 we use the Phonics Bug programme and reading scheme.
A typical phonics lesson in Reception Alphabet song Revisit and review previously learnt sounds and key words. Teach a new sound. Look at the letter, it’s sound and add an action Read words with these sounds by blending sounds. Count the sounds in a word. Practise sounding out objects or words with this sound Writing this new sound in words. Apply the new sound.
The six distinct phonic phases Phase 1: The emphasis during Phase 1 is to get children attuned to the sounds around them and ready to begin developing oral blending and segmenting skills. Activities are divided into seven aspects, including environmental sounds, instrumental sounds, body sounds, rhythm and rhyme, alliteration, voice sounds and finally oral blending and segmenting.
Phase 2 Phase 2 sounds satp inmd gock ckeur hbfff lllss Tricky words the to I go no and into
Phase 3 Phase 3 sounds jvwx yzzzqu chshthng aieeighoa oooo aror owoiearair ureur Tricky words be me he my she they we are you her all was
Phase 4 No new phonemes are introduced. CVCC words eg. hand CCVC words eg. snap CCVCC words eg. crept CCCVC words eg. strap CCCVCC words eg. strand Tricky words said havelikeso do somecomewerethere littleonewhenout what
You can help prepare your child for reading by… Singing the alphabet song and learning the letter names Exploring rhyme (Don’t forget nursery rhymes!) ‘I spy’- identifying letters and sounds in the real world Discussing the rhythm of words Oral segmenting and blending games eg. George’s gym Read, read and read!
The Northleaze Reading Programme Pre-reading ORT and Collins wordless books Bug Club- These books will be mainly used in Reception and Year 1. These books are completely decodable and apply phonics learning from Letters and Sounds. Share books- Class books that you can read to your children at home. Children are encouraged to change them at least weekly.
What is Bug Club? A reading programme that the school uses to help teach reading Carefully graded reading books and eBooks Children may take home the books as well as accessing eBooks via a personalised website
Why are we using eBooks? Children can enjoy reading books onscreen and completing fun quiz questions found in the eBooks The quiz questions will help the children practise their reading skills The eBooks are also audio-books, so children can enjoy hearing an expressive reading of the book
Using the eBooks We are providing each child with their own login details to a website where they can read eBooks versions of the books they take home. www.bugclub.co.uk
Using the eBooks Example login details School ID: rrmt Username: Emily22 Password: sheep Each child’s login details will be different Login here with the details we will give you
Phonics Bug eBooks Some eBooks contain a guide to help you know how to help your child with sounds. These eBooks also have one quiz question that focuses on their word-skills.
Helping at home Do a little bit of reading every day. Comment in your child’s reading log. Model being a reader yourself. Read a variety of texts to your children. Discuss the story, ask questions and make predictions. Play with language- rhyme games, ‘I spy’, look for familiar letters and words in the environment etc No comparing! Understand that learning to read is a complex process and it is important to keep it fun.
