Reception children enjoy a fabulous welcome to our school, with an interactive play based approach to learning they are fully supported to progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum becoming well prepared for their Key Stage 1 studies.

The children in Reception Class are offered exciting and challenging learning opportunities, inside and out.

Reading is a key skill for life so development of reading skills is a key focus for all pupils. To support our early readers the school follows the Letters and Sounds scheme to ensure that children quickly and effectively acquire the phonics skills which underpin early reading.

You can find further information about the phonics approach to reading here  and a leaflet with ideas of how you might support your children to secure their phonics learning though games at home.
