Phonics and Writing

As well as a phonics session everyday in Reception, there are daily of opportunities to develop fine motor skills.  These opportunities are carefully planned, depending on the children's needs and stage of development and all activities are accessible to every child.  Activities are planned for the inside and outside provision.

Autumn Term Fine Motor Activities

As fine motor skills and phonics knowledge develops, the children begin to form letters correctly and begin to refine their handwriting skills. Each day the children access a range of activities to advance their skills.

As our journey in reception continues, we become more independent with our phonics and writing. The children have a wide variety of activities to access throughout the provision to enable them to develop their phonics and writing. These can range from making marks in colored sand to writing captions for pictures.
