Reception children were very lucky to have some of their parents join them during their Phonics Learning. Parents were able to gain an understanding of how we teach Phonics and how to support their children at home. Parents were able to gain an insight into learning in the classroom by seeing their children during a Phonics lesson and join in with some fun Phonics activities! We really appreciate parents and carers for taking time out of their morning to share in our learning.
