Welcome to Reception
Welcome to our wonderful Reception Team, Miss Wild (Teacher) and Mrs Bostock (HLTA).
Our Reception Blog above will show you all the exciting things we will be getting up to throughout the year.

We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research out topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.
For Your Information
In Foundation Stage our learning is derived from the children's interests. When your child enters Foundation Stage they will have submitted a list of their personal interests, which are taken into consideration and used as a basis to create a child led curriculum. Within that curriculum there are a number of areas of learning:
UW - Understanding the World
PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development
CL - Communication and Language
L - Literacy
M - Mathematics
PD - Physical Development
EAD - Expressive Arts and Design
Children will be assessed, through play and observations, against these areas throughout their first year in school.

Our Chosen Reading Scheme
For our earliest readers, starting their reading journey we use fully decodable readers from Pearson's Bug Club. We have over 104 fiction and non‑fiction books, with beautiful artwork, humour and characters that children love, and books and topics that the children really want to read. The books are carefully matched to the phonics being taught within school and complement the reading stage your child is at providing challenge and reinforcement that works in partnership with the learning taking place within school.
Over the years, Oxford Reading Tree has taught millions of children to read... and to love to read. Rooted in reading for pleasure and with systematic phonics at its heart, its well-loved characters, breadth and unrivalled support give children everything they need to become confident readers. There are over 800 books which provide a rich and varied choice of writing styles, genres and artwork styles at every level.
