Class Teacher and EYFS Lead
Pupils in Reception have PE each Wednesday. Please ensure that pupils come to school in their PE kit (white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers) and that earrings have been removed. We aim to have PE outside as much as possible pupils are also encouraged to wear tracksuit bottoms and a warm jumper over the top of their usual kit.
Come and look around!
Reading is really important in Reception. We aim to encourage children to look at pictures, ask questions and retell stories in different ways. We love to read! We believe it is important to build a real love for reading by regularily sharing stories during school time and at home.
These are our Mini Mission stories that we have read and enjoyed!
As a school we follow the Ruth Miskin 'Read Write inc' reading scheme.
'Read Write Inc. Phonics is a whole-school approach to teaching literacy for children aged 4 to 9 that creates fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.'
In Reception children have daily phonics sessions where they learn new sounds. Children will then begin to segment and blend the sounds they know and read simple words, these are called 'Green Words'. Children will also learn words that they cannot initially 'sound out' these are called 'Red Words'. Children will then move on to read 'Red Ditty' books and simple sentences.
