Literacy in the Early Years is split into two aspects;
Writing: Writing in reception plays a part in everything that we do. Children begin their day with a short physical development session, this may include dough disco to develop the muscles in our hands to help with pencil grip, writing our names or practising correct number formation. As the year progresses the children should use their phonic knowledge to begin to write simple words and captions which will lead on to writing sentences and stories.
Reading: Reading in reception is taught through the use of daily phonics lessons. Children are taught how to identify the sounds(phonemes) in words and how to blend them together to read simple words and sentences. Children are also taught how to identify irregular words( words that can not be sounded out phonetically). Children are encouraged to enjoy a range of books including non-fiction and express their understanding through role-play, talking partners and creative activities.
Reception Parents Reading meeting will take place on Thursday 19th October 9:15am

Children use numbers in every life so it is vital that they are confident in identifying and using them in a range of different ways.
This half term Reception will be focusing on numbers 1-10 or 1-20.
This will include;
identifying the correct numerals
correcting missing numbers/ numbers out of sequence
matching number to quantity.
practising correct number formation.
Children will learn these skills in a fun and practical way through their play,small group activities, outdoor learning and interactive games and songs.
One of our favourite songs can be found below- Ask your child to show you the actions and have fun counting!
