Welcome to Reception

In Reception, there are two classes:

Ladybirds – Miss Wilson (interim EYFS lead) & Bumblebees – Miss Jilka

We are supported by:

Mrs Joyce & Ms King



In Reception, we teach Phonics through a scheme called Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised. This is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) developed for schools. It is based on the original Letters and Sounds, but has been extensively revised to provide a complete teaching programme which meets all the expectations of the National Curriculum.

Children have daily Phonics lessons and each Friday, we review the week’s teaching to help children become fluent readers.

We recently held a Phonics information meeting for parents. If you were unable to attend, or would like to look back at what was said, please scroll through the slides below or click here to download a copy.
