Reading in the reception classroom

Hodgson, John


John Hodgson


Ofated’s 2017 review of the Reception year curriculum asserts that reading is the core purpose of the Re-ception year, and advocates “systematic systematic phonics” as the teaching method. This precept disre-gards research into the nature of reading in the early years and the professional wisdom of early years teachers.
