Language, Literacy and Communication

Language, Literacy and Communication is a very exciting area of learning in Reception as this is where our children begin their reading and writing learning journey! This term we begin the Read Write Inc Phonics program and teach the children the individual initial sounds in addition to beginning to blend the sounds together.

Our theme this term is 'Once Upon a Time' and we will be listening and learning about 'Stories of 3' - stories that have 3 main characters. As well as the very well-known stories of The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Goldilocks and the Three Bears we will also listen to Funnybones, Pumpkin Soup and Owl Babies. Why not share these stories with your children at home?

We also begin learning Welsh. The children will be learning the phrases: Croeso (Welcome), Pwy wyt ti? (Who are you?), Sut wyt ti? (How are you?), Ga i'r ...? (May I have...?) and Pa liw? (Which colour?). 

Language. Literacy and Communication in Action!

It all started with a brown paper bag!

Puppet Wales visited us with a performance of a different version of The Three Billy Goats Gruff!
