Welcome to Reception Parents Meeting 2018-2019 - for children starting in September 2018

Phonics in Reception



At St. Raphael's, we teach children to read using Read Write Inc. Phonics. This teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. 


The children in Reception are starting to learn their sounds, and soon they will be able to blend them into words! We have a session for parents every Wednesday at 2:50 in Reception Eve to help teach parents their sounds and give them all the information they need to help their children at home. 


We have put some phonics resources below that are very helpful for reading and writing with your children at home. Please take a look!


Information for Parents: How to say the sounds

Confused about how to pronounce the sounds found in Read Write Inc. Phonics? Worry not - 5-year-old Sylvie is here to show you how! Use this guide to support your child when practising the sounds at home. - - - Did you like this video?

Our Golden Rules 


We use these rules in school to promote positive behaviours. Please feel free to print this poster out to use at home with your child.
