Welcome From Percy.

Hi, it is Percy!

 I am so excited about starting a brand new year. I have already met lots of my new friends when they visited the classroom in July.

I think we are going to have lots of fun. All the teachers have been in school getting the classroom ready.

Our reading area now has a '100 Aker Wood' theme. I love this because I have made lots of new friends. Pooh has been really friendly and has shared his honey with me.

Anyway I had better go tidy up my bit of the classroom.

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their summer holiday and I will see you all soon.

Bye or now.



Reading Books and Phonics in Reception.


In reception we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' guidance. Alongside this we use 'Phonics Play'. This has a website with lots of useful resources and also includes lesson plans which are adapted by the school. In addition, when we introduce each phoneme we use the 'Jolly Phonics' actions as a lot of children are familiar with some of these from their nursery.


We have a variety of reading schemes in reception that we run alongside each other using book banded levels. We do this in order to provide a greater variety in books.

The schemes we use are:

Oxford Reading Tree

Collins Big Cat

Ginn Reading 360

Talk a Story

Read with Biff Chip and Kipper

Rigby Star

Rigby Rocket

Usborne Very First Reading

Usborne Phonics Readers

Floppies Phonics
