Welcome From Percy.
Hi it is Percy here!
I am so sorry I have not met you all properly yet. It was a little bit hot for me outside in July when you came and visited school.
I am looking forward to meeting you all though. All your teachers have been in school getting the classroom ready for you all. It is looking great. I overheard them talking and it seems like there are lots of exciting new things that we are going to be learning about this term.
I sometimes get a little bit muddled up though when I learn new things, so I am hoping that you will all be able to help me a little bit. I always try my best but I do not always get things right. All the Reception teachers tell me that that is ok though, as long as I have tried.
I am sure we are going to have lots of fun together. I had better go and tidy up my part of the classroom. The reading area has changed over the summer. I think I might make my new home in there, it looks really exciting.
See you all soon.
Meet The Staff
Mrs Bowman - Class teacher. Mrs Spencer-Peck - Teaching Thursday Afternoons. Mrs Hulton + Mrs Peeling - Teaching Assistants.
Reading Books and Phonics in Reception.
In Reception we follow the 'Letters and Sounds' guidance. In order to deliver the requirements outlined in the guidance we use 'Phonics Play'. This has a website with lots of useful resources and also includes lesson plans which are adapted by the school. Further details about our phonics policy and provision can be found on the English subject website page. 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 and help maintain interest 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
