Phonics & Reading

We follow the Phonics programme Sounds~Write, with phonics sessions taking place daily. We then follow Phoincs with Reading. The children will read a book designed to support the Phonics teaching daily, in a small group, with an adult. This book, along with a Reading for Pleasure book will be sent home at the end of the week.


Each half term we have a focus story book. We explore this book in lots of detail and the children will become very familiar with it. Throughout the half term, we have lots of activities and learning linked to the book. 


Over the year we will develop a deep understanding of numbers to 10, moving onto numbers beyond 10 in the Summer term. We also explore Shape, Space and Measure. 

Other Information

Our PE session take place on Thursday afternoons and Reading books are swapped on Fridays.

In Reception most of the learning takes place whilst the children are playing, with the adults supporting and extending through our interactions. However, please find below an overview on some of the topics we will be learning about. As well as videos on the pronunciation of the sounds the children will be learning and the importance of Early Number Sense.
