Reading – In reception, children are taught the skills they need to begin to read with fluency and understanding. Children are exposed to a range of stories and books everyday through fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

Children are taught how to recite familiar stories and poems as well as compose their own.

Phonics is taught daily following the Read, Write Inc. approach. Children are taught to recognise letters and their sounds to enable them to begin to read and write simple sentences and beyond.
