Literacy: 

Children in the Early Years will be developing their speaking and listening skills by listening to a wide range of stories and will be introduced to new vocabulary. Storytelling, role play and first hand experiences will support confidence and language development. Here at Youlgrave, we follow the Read Write Inc. scheme for our Phonics and Literacy inputs. The children will begin to learn their initial sounds; starting with set 1. In reading sessions, the children will be working towards:

  • Reading simple sounds and blending them for reading.

  • Using their phonics knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately.

  • Read some common irregular words.

  • Demonstrate an understanding when talking with others about what they have read.

In our writing sessions, the children will be working towards;

  • Using their phonics knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds.

  • Writing simple sentences.

Phonics:

This half term we are continuing with our Set 1 Phonics sounds. These are the sounds I sent home to you to keep as a resource last half term. In our English sessions we are looking at stories and throughout the week having 1:1 reading with a adult, group reading and we are practising our handwriting and having a go at making simple VC and CVC words such as 'at' and 'dog'.

 

Please can you continue to support us with reading with your child at home. We do our best to change your child's books as frequently as we can and we would appreciate if your child could read to you a few times a week; and that you record a little note in your child's home reading record.
