Welcome to our Reception Class family page
This is going to be an exciting year in your child’s learning journey and our aim is to provide an enabling and stimulating environment in which your children feel happy to explore and learn.
Take a look at the Induction Powerpoint for 2023 Starters. It shares key information, routines and important dates for your diary.
You can also read our Early Year’s policy on this website which further documents our Intent, Implementation and Impact of the curriculum.
Entry and Exit
The children and parents enter and exit the school through the right-hand side green gate and wait on the path. To begin with parents are invited to bring their child into the setting and as the first few weeks progress we encourage the children to come into the setting independently.
In Reception, children learn to read in a story-rich environment. We share books every day and learn about the world through a range of fiction and non-fiction books. Children learn to read through daily phonics sessions and learn cued articulation to support their understanding of the 44 sounds of the English language. Children are encouraged to develop their writing skills through extensive imaginative play and exploration of the environment.
At Silverdale Primary Academy we use Read Write Inc (RWI) for our systematic approach to teaching phonics. For more information please click below;
