Our children take part in daily phonics lessons following the Read Write Inc scheme. During this time, the children learn to read and write new sounds with the help of Fred Frog, creating the foundation for our children to start their journey into becoming brilliant writers!
In Reception, we are focusing on using our sounds to form individual words before building up to writing sentences. To achieve this, we carry out daily English lessons. These lessons are based on fun and stimulating books to engage the children in their learning. During these sessions, the children will learn basic grammar and punctuation, such as how to use capital letters and full stops correctly as well as letter formation and how to apply their phonetic knowledge to writing words.
In mathematics, the children are focusing on one number a week, ensuring that they have an in-depth understanding of the different numbers and how they relate to one another. We start with the numbers 0-10 before moving onto two-digit numbers when we are ready to do so. As well as this, we also investigate shape, space and measures to allow the pupils to experience a wide range of maths.
