Phonics - How to say the sounds

This video tells you how to say all of the 44 sounds that children in Reception will learn. Its also explains some of the language that children will be using when learning phonics.



The children (and us) are having so much fun exploring different areas within the classroom and making strong friendships. You may hear your child talk about COOL Time. This is when we Choose Our Own Learning. Staff plan activities that challenge children to grow their brains whilst the children are 'playing'. 


In Reception the children take the lead and are encouraged to have ownership over their learning. We learn through topics that interest them, which makes the learning more meaningful. Each week we will let you know what we have been learning, so that you can practice at home. Don't forget to look at the parent notices on the door. 


Just a reminder that all children should bring their reading folder and home learning book every day.



We are always around before or after school if you have any questions.


Thank you for your support, 


Mrs Pentith and Mrs Dixon frown



Talk Like A Pirate


YOHOHO we’re pirates! We have had so much fun this week channelling our inner pirates and the children looked great in their costumes. I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you for putting in so much effort. We have done so many pirate activities; making maps, writing messges in bottles, reading stories, singing songs, playing games and of course digging for pirate treasure!  


Have a look at the pictures below to see what we got up to.


Our first days in Reception are a lot of fun!

How to say the sounds just like us!


The order of the sounds in the video are as follows...
