Phonics and Reading in Reception
At Corpus Christi, we strive to provide an outstanding level of education for the children in our care. In order to achieve this, we are continually monitoring and reviewing our curriculum and teaching. It is through this process that we have come to the decision to use a different programme through which to deliver our phonics and early reading teaching. We have sought advice from Arch English Hub and consulted with specialists to ensure a successful, phased roll-out of the programme. The relevant information and documentation has been updated to align with our new SSP, 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised.'
Further guidance and information for parents
Each week, children have a new assignment set on spelling shed to support their phonics teaching. Children has a username and password attached to their blue communication book.
Supporting Reading at Home
Great ways to support learning at home:
Sharing books and stories – telling stories and talking about pictures in books helps children to learn and understand new words and also develop a love of reading.
Singing songs and rhymes – singing songs and rhymes together teaches children to predict language structures and develops their vocabulary.
Playing with letters and sounds – playing games with the shapes and sounds of letters is a fun way of introducing children to language and early reading.
Setting up a play date – young children learn through play. Playing together helps children develop the skills they need to communicate well and socialise, especially when they start going to nursery and school.
Getting out and about – when you go out for a walk or you’re at the supermarket, help children to spot and recognise the signs and words around them. This encourages talk.
Painting and drawing – making marks and scribbles with a lots of different materials allows children to express themselves, helps their muscles develop and supports early writing.
Using the library – parents and children can borrow books for free and attend storytelling and rhyme groups.

CBeebies- Bedtime Stories
During Early Years' Foundation Stage, a child's first experiences with oral health can impact on the rest of their life. That's why it's so important to teach them about their mouth and introduce them to good habits as soon as possible.
