Reading in Reception 

Reading is such an important skill to learn, we want all children to develop a love for reading! 

In reception we begin by looking at picture books to develop our vocabulary, imagination and communication skills. Each week your child will bring home a picture book.

We then move on to learning our letter sounds and blending skills through the Read, Write, Inc phonics scheme to develop our word reading skills. Once the children become confident in blending words they will take home an additional book that matches their reading ability. In addition to this your child will take home a bookmark with high frequency words on, please encourage your child to practice recognising these words. When they are confident with all of the words, they will be given a new bookmark with different words on. 

We encourage you to read with your child 5 times a week. Please ensure this is recorded in your child's reading record! If your child completes their 5 reads each week their name will be announced in our celebration assembly on Friday's!

Please watch the video to help you to hear how we teach the sounds to the children during their phonics lesson.

I hope this helps,
