Phonics information for parents

Reading

In Key Stage 1 volunteers and teaching assistants listen to children read individually. This time gives children the opportunity to consolidate the learning gained from guided reading sessions with their teachers. Early Years children read at least once a week with either a teacher, or teaching assistant and start guided reading when reading skills are strong enough. For some children this is often in the summer term.

We are lucky in that we have a wide range of reading schemes to choose from, enabling us to target individual’s skills accordingly. Sometimes we may choose books which will help to consolidate phonic reading skills and other times selecting books which will revise the full range of reading skills.

Our core reading scheme is the Rigby Rocket (individual readers) and Rigby Star (guided reading) scheme. In addition other schemes such as Oxford reading tree, Songbirds phonics, Story worlds, Oxford literacy web, New way and Ginn reading 360 are dovetailed into this core scheme.

We encourage parents to read with their children and to their children as often as possible. This does not always mean picking up their individual reading scheme book. The value of reading to children can often be underestimated. The language patterns, vocabulary and knowledge of story structures and different text types that children learn from sharing and enjoying a book with an adult are tremendous. Reading comics, magazines, appropriate newspaper stories, an email, a shopping list, even the back of the cereal packet are all worthwhile reading activities for children, helping them to understand that opportunities to read are all around us every day.

PE

Children that wear earrings should be able to remove these themselves, or not wear these on PE days. (It is advisable to have ears pierced at the beginning of the summer holiday).

We do twice a week. EYFS join in with PE, but also have other physical opportunities as part of their Early Years curriculum, this includes using balancing equipment, riding bikes and trikes and inventing their own physical games and dances. PE kit should be kept in school all week to give school flexibility when timetable changes are needed.

Homework

Key Stage 1 (Year 1) Homework involves reading and learning spellings. These are tested weekly.
Occasional extra homework often involves a task to complete or game to play with an adult. By sharing in their children's homework, parents have the opportunity to see how their child is progressing and what they know.
Some children will be given individualised homework to help them consolidate their learning in areas that they find challenging, or are having difficulty.

In EYFS regular reading and phonics is the only homework given, when children are ready. However from time to time, we may ask parents to practise skills where children need a little extra support at home. In addition, all class M adults are happy to advise about additional fun activities, that will help your child learn through play at home.
