Dear Parents and Carers,

Reception Phonics Meeting


As you may be aware, from Reception onwards children are learning to read using phonics as their main strategy.  We understand that as a parent you will want to support your child’s learning at home but that this may be something unfamiliar.


With this in mind, we would like to invite Reception parents to a phonics information meeting on Thursday 12th November, 9.30-10.00am. The session will include a brief introduction to phonics,  show you some of the type of phonics activities that children do in school, as well as some ideas of what you could try at home. 


Due to the current restrictions for coming into school, this meeting will be held virtually on Zoom, meaning that you will stay at home and join using your computer, tablet or phone.
