Welcome to Early Years


We love reading! We use Read, Write Inc to support our teaching of phonics and reading and our children are taught in small targeted groups each day. We assess children each half term so as we are always confident that their phonics learning meets their needs. Every child takes home a Read, Write Inc reading book each week to show off their wonderful reading skills, that they have worked so hard on all week, at home. 

Please explore our English curriculum pages to find out more about how we teach phonics within our school.

Why is Easter a time for hope and joy?In our RE lessons, we will begin with the unit of Easter.  We will be learning about the resurrection of Jesus and why it is not a time of sadness.  We will be thinking about how we can bring hope and joy to others too.
