Learning to read

From unknown symbols on a page to reading simple words and sentences independently, our Reception children have travelled on a magical reading adventure since September.

Through a discovery of phonemes each week, the children quickly began to recognise individual sounds, blending them together to read words. Captivating the children’s enthusiasm for reading through songs, actions, games and puzzles, our Reception children have quickly mastered the art of reading a story. The delight on the children’s faces when they realise that they could read the bedtime story to their families is magical to witness, and we look forward to helping them apply their phonic skills to help them record their own imaginative ideas as they learn to write this term.
