This morning we were delighted to welcome parents and grandparents into school to see how we teach phonics and early literacy. The children joined us in the hall and participated beautifully for a Read, Write, Inc session, showing their skills in learning new sounds, blending sounds to read and segmenting to spell. We then invited everyone back into the classroom to take part in some literacy style games and activities to promote speaking and listening, reading and writing and how these can be supported through play at home.
Many thanks to parents and grandparents for your time. We were very grateful for your feedback and delighted with the comments you gave us.
