Spring term Curriculum
Meet the Teacher 2022
In Reception we follow the statutory Foundation Stage Curriculum. The document 'Development Matters' shows a clear view of how the children are supported in making progress across the curriculum.
In Reception we are laying the foundations for developing confident and imaginative readers and writers.
Phonics is the building blocks for reading and writing. We follow Read Write Inc. (RWI) scheme. The children start by learning letter sounds and develop phonological skills of segmenting and blending. Click below to find our more about RWI.
