Reception Had Fun with Phonics

Reception Whales Class have been having a lot of fun with Phonics! We have finished learning our phase two sounds and have been busy practicing our blending and segmenting skills through lots of different media.

We have been using phoneme frames, white boards, magnetic letters and letter threading to chains to help us consolidate our understanding of initial sounds and how they blend together to create words. 
 
Our new Reception iPads have been fantastic for all aspects of our learning, and phonics is no exception. We love the interactive applications and thoroughly enjoy using them in our classroom during our ICT lessons. Our confidence is growing daily and we are beginning to write words and simple sentences independently, and using our knowledge to challenge our friends to phonics games. 
 
We will soon be bringing our reading books home and we’re all very excited to begin the next phase of our learning journey.
