A more structured day
Where specialist teaching begins.
We gently ease the class into a more structured school day, led by an experienced qualified teacher. Literacy and Mathematics are taught daily in Reception, where children participate in a range of practical activities to support their learning.
Phonics is taught through the Read, Write Inc. (RWI) phonics programme, which provides children with the opportunity to practice their early reading and writing skills. Children also participate in a range of topics that focus on a story and enable the children to develop their understanding of the world and explore their creativity through art and design activities.
We balance the children’s academic endeavours with specialist PE and music classes (each occurring twice a week) and there are plenty of opportunities to play and continue developing their cognitive abilities. Children also attend Forest School once a week.
