Phonics Day


Each year we host a phonics day for children and there parents in Nursery, Reception, Year One and Year Two. On the day the children from each class take part in a carousel of phonics learning and games delivered by the class teachers in these phases. This is then followed by a 'Come and Join Us' session with parents.

Our phonics day has been a great success in the past and has given us the opportunity to build relationships between the children and staff in preparation for transition. Share in the strengths of our staff and their phonics teaching and inform parents.


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.
