Life in Reception

We aim to encourage happy, confident, creative independent explorers prepared to take risks with their learning!

Literacy

In Reception we are laying the foundations for developing confident and imaginative readers and writers.

Phonics

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.

Saying the sounds with a 'pure' sound is one of the most important skills.

Each term we have choose a broad theme to follow. This is directed by the children's interests. Through these themes we explore all 7 areas of the EYFS curriculum and  focus on the individual needs of the children. Stories are at the core of our learning with the class focusing on key texts every few weeks.
