Welcome From Percy.

Hi it is Percy here again!

It has been great finally meeting Reception. I can tell you are all going to great friends this year. Thank you for saying that you will help me with some of my learning. I always get my numbers mixed up!

I have been spotting how great you are at using the hand sanitiser that is around the classroom. You are also great at using the sink to wash your hands. 

I am really looking forward to the term ahead. I know Mrs Bowman, Mrs Hulton, Mrs Peeling and Mrs Spencer-Peck have some really fun activities for us to do.

Mrs Bowman will be telling you all about reading books and other details about class in a couple of weeks.   

Right I had better go now because I need make sure I have a sleep before some more fun days. I will talk to you again soon.

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

Welcome Meeting Documents.

The downloadable documents below are ones that you might find useful through the year. They range from our 'Reception Class Promises' to an overview of the EYFS curriculum and objectives.

The red link below takes you to another useful government document which outlines more features of 'Early Years' and helps to illustrate 'what to expect when' in terms of learning.

Again, these documents will all stay on the website for future reference, so do not feel you have to take them all in right now.   (Government Parent Guide)
