Class Routines

In Reception we follow the Foundation Stage Curriculum, which allows the children both structured, adult-led time and also lots of time to learn through child-led play (continuous provision). Please click here to  read our Foundation Stage Policy

We have a flexible timetable  that changes depending on the interests of the children but during this half term, most days it looks like this:

    Each day starts with key worker groups.  

    Miss Watson, Mrs Ward and Mrs Foden are key workers for a group each.



    Phonics


   Phonics is taught everyday at 11.30am​.

   In Reception, we follow the Letters and Sounds resource for phonics. It sets out a detailed systematic programme for teaching phonics skills for          children starting by the age of five, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by the age of seven.

    Reading

      Our guided reading carousel consists of different activities that your child will carry out 

      every week. They are: 
       - 2 guided reading activities (with an adult) 
       - a fine motor skills activity 

       - a chance to choose a book of their choice in the Reading Area. 
       - a chance to practise speech, language and communication skills in the Role Play Area. 


      Guided Reading books will not be sent home. Individual books are changed weekly and will be sent on either a Tuesday or a Thursday. ​Reading with           your child at home is so important and really does help to enhance learning. Please remember to sign your child's reading diary so we know the book         can be changed.
