Reception Team



Reading is an important whole school focus. Your child will take part in phonics sessions each morning through our Read, Write, Inc programme. They will also learn reading comprehension skills through our English lessons. Your child will bring home two books each week; a Read, Write Inc. book linked to their phonics group and a 'Reading for Pleasure' book. 

Please ensure you read regularly with your child (minimum 3 times a week) and sign their reading record. Your child should bring their Read, Write Inc. book and reading record in EVERY DAY.
