'Letters and Sounds'
Phonics teaching & learning in Reception
At Emmaus Phonics is immersed in everything we do. The children complete a daily phonics lesson and we have high expectations that the skills taught in phonics will be applied across the curriculum. Whenever a child reads or writes we expect them to apply their phonic skills. We provide every opportunity to support children develop their early reading skills. From guided reading, shared reading, reading for pleasure, support groups, enhancing the environment and celebrating the effort children make to apply their skills. The team at Emmaus have a shared vision that ensures Reading is at the heart of our curriculum.
At Emmaus, from Reception, the children learn to read using a wide range of decodable books. Children take home decodable books linked to what they have been taught in Letters and Sounds. We encourage parents to celebrate their child’s achievements and support them in developing their fluency when reading to them.
