Phonics and letter formation
As you all my know we use two different schemes when learning phonics and letter formation. We use Jolly Phonics to learn the letter sound. (This is the sound that the letter makes not the name of the letter.) We then use Read Write Inc. to form our letter sounds.
Below we have added some useful links and resources when helping your child with their phonics and letter formation.
It is really important to share stories at home. This helps with speech and comprehension. Whether this be looking through story books and retelling the story in their own words, using a range of different questioning or reading simple CVC words or recognising sounds and sign in the environment.
Oxford reading owl is a great resource to find online texts that the children can explore. With a FREE ebook library and advice and support for parents and educational activities and games.
Please use the link below.
We follow Numberblocks each time we learn a new number. Whether this is counting, recognising or forming the number.
Below are links to Numberblocks videos and activities
As parents you may find these documents useful when assisting your child's
development at home. They are to be used as a guide as we know that all children develop in different ways and at different rates.

If you would like to know more about Nursery, please get in contact with school. You can collect a welcome pack which tells you all about our Nursery, as well as an application form.
Please see below for a application form that you can print out at home.
Children applying for Nursery will have a home visit. Home visits enable children and Nursery to meet staff and parents are able to fill in forms and ask any questions they may have. Additionally children will be able to access transition sessions in the Nursery class. This is also in order to help to to get settled into the class. These will take place the term before the child is due to start Nursery.
If you think that your child is close to starting school age and have any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
