Mrs Newton and Miss Mohr are the class teachers and are supported by two teaching assistants, Mrs Davenport and Mrs Shipton. Below you will find information which explain what skills and topics are taught in Reception. We have also included some information about how we teach Reading, Phonics and Maths. We hope that these documents will give you an insight into what goes on in Reception throughout the year. 



Reading and Phonics

We use the Read, Write, Inc. programme to teach phonics and to develop reading. This phonics programme supports our teaching of writing skills as well. Please follow the link below for a more detailed explanation of the Read Write Inc. programme.

What is Read Write Inc. Phonics?

In this section there are links to numerous resources that you will find useful as you embark on your child's reading journey.

How To Pronounce Single Letter Sounds In Phonics - a short video that teaches you how to say the letter sounds correctly.

Reading Meeting Videos - Here are the two videos. One is an explanation of how to begin and progress with your child's reading journey, the other was a zoom Q&A session we held.

Fred Talk Games - These are games to help build skills for reading.



In Maths, we use the 'Number A Week' approach to teach all areas of maths, e.g number recognition, number order, counting, shape recognition, pettern etc. Follow the link below to  find more information in the document, 'Maths Fluency in Early Years' 

Maths Fluency in Early Years


Here is a video that explains in further detail the key areas of learning that we focus on in Early Years. We explain in detail what and how we teach, as well as seeing around the classes and learning more about what happens in our Reception classes. We hope you find it informative. 


At the bottom of the class page you can find our photo gallery which gives you a little snapshot of our learning.
