Learning to Read and Write – Autumn 2021

Children are encouraged to build on their skills in reading and writing during their own play and with adult-led sessions. In the Autumn Term, we are teaching all the Phase 2 sounds during our daily Phonic sessions. We use the ‘Teach Your Monster to Read’ monsters to introduce each new sound following the Letters and Sounds program.

We play lots of games to encourage them to blend the sounds to form simple words. Children are given opportunities to ‘have a go’ at writing in different areas of the environment following their interests. We also model writing with children, inviting their contributions- which sound can you hear next?

Our class stories support children’s literacy skills, encouraging them to create their own story maps and encouraging them to create their own stories. They have time to enjoy ‘reading’ to themselves and to listen to a wide range of exciting stories.
