Harvest Assembly - Reception Class | Weldon Church of England Primary School (

At Weldon, we use one synthetic phonics programme from YR to Y2: We use Letters and Sounds to teach phonics and graphic knowledge (common exception words and tricky words). We supplement this scheme with relevant materials that match the sets and phases and have fidelity to letters and Sounds.
Using this programme, we are confident that: - grapheme/phoneme (letter/sound) correspondences are taught in a clearly defined, incremental sequence; - we introduce children very early on to a defined initial group of consonants and vowels, enabling them to read and spell as soon as possible many simple CVC words; - children are taught the highly important skill of blending phonemes, in order, all through a word to read it; - children are taught to apply the skills of segmenting words into their constituent phonemes to spell; blending and segmenting are reversible processes. - Multi-sensory activities used are interesting and engaging but firmly focused on intensifying the learning associated with its phonic goal.
The programme starts almost immediately children enter Reception, from the second week of starting school.   For further info please see our Reading Intent on our Curriculum tab.
