Foundations for Phonics
At Chandos we use Little Wandle Letters and Sounds to teach children how to learn to read
In our Nursery we follow 'Foundations in Phonics' so that children are ready to start formal phonics sessions when they start Reception
We have daily small group sessions called 'Rhyme Time' and 'Sounds time'. In these sessions, children will be taught to:
- Our inside and outside environment is designed to make children confident communicators. This includes rapidly learning new vocabulary and appropriate grammatical structures. Children will also learn how to take turns in a conversation.
- In Nursery we strive to foster a love of books and reading with all children.
- Below are some resources that parents can use at home to support their children to be ready to start formal phonics sessions when they start Reception
In the term your child starts Nursery you will be invited to a workshop to explain fully how Foundations for Phonics works and how you can help at home
You will also support your child to pick their first school library book to share with them at home. These books can be changed weekly.
