Welcome to Reception class. I am Mrs Newman the class teacher. The wonderful Teaching Assistants I have for my class are Mrs Thorne and Mrs Graves and Mrs Pietersen.

Reception Class Long Term Planning




Early phonics knowledge is the key to starting to decode written words. Children can use phonics knowledge to “sound out” words. Children learn to recognise how sounds are represented alphabetically and identify some letter sounds, symbols, characters and signs.

At Broad Chalke Primary School we use the scheme Essential Letters and Sounds to teach children phonics. The children are taught phonics every day. 

Please follow these links to find out more about the scheme and how to pronounce 'pure letter sounds'.
