Reception

 
Hello Everyone and Welcome to the Reception Class Page!

 

Class Teacher: Ms Harris     Teaching Assistant: Mrs Turza

                    
In Reception, we learn through play-based learning where we investigate, explore and discover whilst developing our independence. To find out more information about our Curriculum please click the following link: 

PE

Reception have PE on Wednesday and Thursday. PE kits are sent home half termly to be washed. If you wish to wash your PE kit earlier than that please let us know. 

It would be helpful to have all of the children clothes labelled in order to avoid confusion.

 

Library

 

Our library day is on Friday. The children borrow a book from our school library every Friday. The books should be returned by Thursday in order to obtain a different book each week.

 

Home Learning

It is so important to spend the time reading with your child. We would advise you to read with your child every day to support them in their reading. If you have an issues or problems with this, please come and see us and we will always help!

Phonics

Phonics is a way of teaching children to read skillfully. They are taught how to recognise the sounds that each individual letter makes, identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make – such as ‘sh’ or ‘oo’ and blend those sounds together from left to right to make a word. Children can then use this knowledge to ‘decode’ new words that they see or hear. This is the first important step to learning to read.

 

We use two phonics schemes at St Joseph's to support the teaching of reading and writing:

1) Jolly Phonics provides the children with pictures and actions to support learning of the sound

 

2) Letters and Sounds has a range of activities to practice the skills of sounding out and blending phonemes to support their progress in reading and writing.   

 

In phonic sessions children are taught to recognise letters, understand the sound they make and then blend them together to create words. Some words, which cannot be phonetically sounded out, are taught at each phase. These are ‘tricky words’ and are taught through sight recognition.
