RE: Parent Phonic Workshops for Reception


Dear Parent / Carer,


What a wonderful start our new Reception children have had so far this week; they are settling in so well and we are very proud of them!


Learning to read is the most important thing your child will learn at our school. Everything else depends on it, so we put as much energy as we possibly can into making sure that every single child learns to read as quickly as possible.  We start by teaching phonics to children in Reception. This means they learn how to ‘read’ the sounds in words and how sounds can be written down.


In order to provide you with information about how we teach phonics and how you can support your child at home, we are offering a ‘Phonic workshop’ for the parents/carers.


We are inviting you to one of the following workshops:


Wednesday 14th September at 9:00 AM or Wednesday 14th September at 2:45 PM


If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you.


Kind regards,


Lucy Ebdon


Deputy Headteacher
