Phonics Day


On Friday 16th October we held ‘Phonics Day’ for children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1. The children enjoyed playing games and engaging in phonics teaching with the teachers and TA’s within their bubble. We focussed on different aspects of phonics teaching such as writing graphemes, building words and sentences using taught phonemes, reading and writing non-decodable words.


If you woulds like to know more about phonics teaching in EYFS and KS1 please head over to our phonics page and/or speak to your child's class teacher.


We have had great feedback from both children and parents. Here is what they thought:

"In Miss Moore's class we were being detectives for letters" said Isaac-James

"We was finding sounds and had to draw a picture of what we found" said Nathan

"We were reading words." "It was fun, we got to play musical chairs" said Zachary and Ellis

"This is my favourite. We were playing with swapping cards and we could learn new words and it was cool. I like it" said Ella-Rose

"I liked running around for alien and real words. It was my favourite part" said Alfie-jack.

"It is so different from how we were taught,  you learn something new every day." said Jessica's mum and dad.

"He's been doing that rollercoaster arm at home when reading" said Darren's dad.
