We would like to thank all of our reception parents for attending our phonic workshop. We hope you have gained an insight into how our school teaches phonics and got some new ideas to make phonics fun at home!

You will never believe what happened in reception! When we came back from lunch we discovered our classroom a huge mess! We found some clues and set about working out who is was. After finding some sticks, straw, bricks and footprints we worked out it was the big bad wolf! We then found some selfies confirming it was him who trashed our classroom. We set about making wanted posters to find him!

We explored the story of the 3 little pigs and found out that brick was the best material to build a house from because it was strong and stable. We went on a local walk around Simonside to look at what our houses were made from. We found ours were made from red, yellow and some even had grey bricks! All of the houses were different shapes and sizes and we learnt some names for houses such as a bungalow, detached, semi-detached and terraced houses.


We have been exploring our new classroom and garden here in Reception and we are all settled into Lord Blyton Life! We have been making new friends, learning new things and enjoying our first school lunches! We can’t wait to see what the year ahead brings!

Why begin Teaching Reading through Games?


It is vital that early reading experiences are happy and positive. The aim should be not just for children to learn to read, but to enjoy reading. Whilst games may appear to be an indirect approach, they do protect a child from a feeling of failure. By 'playing together' both parent and child are relaxed. Where a child could feel pressured in a formal teaching situation he/she will usually enjoy reading activities in a 'play' situation. This leaflet aims to give you simple ideas to try.
