Sounds like they’re building documentation, in case your performance doesn’t improve. The next step after written documentation is usually a performance improvement plan. I would definitely not respond in email - come up with counter arguments and your side of the story to discuss in your 1:1. Try to be unemotional and present facts. I would also figure out exactly what your manager is expecting in terms of ‘performance at your level’ so you have clear markers to hit.

I would also add that you should sell how receptive you are to feedback, and possibly start firing up your resume. Doesn’t hurt!
