Reception Children

Phonics and handwriting resources

During their time in reception class and KS1, children will be taught Phonics daily to help them to develop as readers. At Etwall Primary School we use the Jolly Phonics programme of progression for phases 1-4, with Nottingham City revised Letters and Sounds being used for phases 5-6.


The leaflet below aims to guide you through Phase 1-3 phonics, from sounding out letters to building more complex words. It give you simple ideas to try in a relaxed ‘playing together’ way so that your child can enjoy themselves and learn at the same time.
