Reading/ Phonics 

At Holly Grove we are a reading school and encourage reading at every opportunity. In Reception we follow the Big Cat Collins scheme, children are only given reading books when they are ready. Each child reads with a teacher at least twice weekly and we ask you read this book with them at home at least 3 times a week. Children have the opportunity to choose a library book to take home and read during class reading sessions which we offer 10 minutes everyday. Children change this book twice weekly. If a child reads three times weekly they will be given a raffle ticket, if they read every day they will be given two raffle tickets. Raffle tickets are drawn out at the end of each month for your child's chance to win some free books. 

Phonics sessions take place daily here at Holly Grove, where we follow the Little Wandle letters and sounds scheme. Children in Reception will learn phase 2 phonemes between September and October half term. 

Parents can access Little Wandle resources to help support your child at home with their phonics. Please see the following website. 

As well as all the exciting experiences we offer the children at Holly Grove, children also have timetabled big maths sessions to develop their numeracy skills and number knowledge 3 times weekly and also take part in daily phonics sessions. Along with this children also take part in daily massage which promotes SMSC.
