Our recent writing

Phonics

In Phonics we have now learnt all of the sounds that we will cover in Reception. We are now moving onto using sounds in our writing and segmenting and blending longer words and 'chunking up'. 

 

Below you will find a copy of our sound mat that we use in our Phonics lessons and during free-flow play.
