Funnybones S Plan
Spring term 2022
Communication and language continues to be a key skill in developing good Literacy skills. Children are explicitly taught how to be good speakers and good listeners as a discrete aspect of English and the wider curriculum. To become a creative storyteller will be explored at the start of the spring term. This builds upon the Autumn Term Curricular Goal of I am a listener. Within the environment, the number and quality of the conversations child have with adults and peers throughout the day in a language-rich environment is crucial. Through our practice, children develop strong language skills when they are involved in playful, language-rich environments with opportunities to learn new words. This consists of hands-on experiences, role play and a shared love for stories.
Reading and Writing
Through daily Read, Write Inc. sessions the key phonic skills, including grapheme recognition, phoneme pronunciation, oral segmenting, blending and decoding is taught. During the term, children apply phonic knowledge to read words and sentences accurately. Children recognise and learn ‘red’ word. These are words which contain spelling patterns that children, at their stage of learning cannot be sounded out.
Phonic opportunities are embedded in the environment, providing children with opportunity to practise and master core phonic skills, applying to both reading and writing. Curricular Goals: To become a message maker, To become a creative storyteller and To become a Terrific Tool User offer exciting contexts and purpose. Reading and writing opportunities are continued through a variety of Curricular Goals as the term progresses.
Within the environment we have a message maker centre and magic messages are frequently ‘discovered’ by children who are eager to understand what the message means and want to respond. Reading and writing resources are always available to explore within continuous provision. Our role play area is currently a post office. The open ended nature of the resources, promote an environment that enables children to use their imaginations!
Autumn Term 2021
The teaching of English within our EYFS classes focuses upon the core skills of listening, sound discrimination, alliteration and rhyme through direct teaching, guided tasks as well as continuous provision activities. Children are taught to segment and blend words in order to read and word build through daily Read, Write Inc. sessions.
Transition into reception is a priority at the beginning of the autumn term, therefore as children enter reception we will complete a statutory baseline to assess each child’s phonic knowledge and awareness of sound. This will support teachers to tailor learning experiences to support needs.
In the autumn term EYFS children will be taught set 1 sounds of the Read Write Inc programme.
Phonic opportunities are embedded into our EYFS setting, providing children with opportunity to practise and master core phonic skills, applying to both reading and writing. In addition to continuous provision resources which are always available to explore, activities include skill enhancements to keep learning exciting. The open ended nature of the resources, promote an environment that enables children to use their imaginations! Children have access to a phonic area, many writing spaces, a comfortable reading corner and story telling shelves
