Phonics and Stay and Learn

Stay and Learn

Each term we hold a ‘Stay and Learn’ session where the parents and guardians are invited into the classroom for the morning and the class teacher explains what has been happening in school and how the children are progressing. The children then join the parents and show them some of the activities and rainbow challenges that they have been doing in school.

The first Stay and Learn session was on 11th October. We would like to thank parents and carers for all their support in attending our first session. Please find below a copy of the presentation.



On this page we have gathered some links to websites you might find useful. When searching the internet if you come across games or activities please remember in Reception we teach Phases 1 to 4 of ‘Letters and Sounds’ (not all websites give you the option). As a rough guide, we teach the phases as follows -

Autumn – Phase 1 -2

Spring - Phase 2 – 3

Summer – Phase 3 -4

If you find any other useful websites please send the details into school.
