Reading and Writing Presentation-Follow on from our meetings

I thought you would all appreciate a copy of the presentation that I made to explain how we teach the children how to read and write. It is a mixture between a slide show and a video presentation. The slide duration is set for around 10 seconds but you can fast forward if you prefer. You can then refer back to the teaching and learning progression and go over anything you would like more information on.

Reading progression: Three word captions

A short video demonstrating how we teach the children to move from reading to single words to captions.

Early blending for Reading skills

A short video explaining early blending for reading skills. This is incredibly exciting, I love hearing the children reading words all by themselves. It is a major milestone and something to be really proud of. Any questions, please just ask.

We work hard to provide your child with a great start to school life and we are extremely keen to develop great relationships with the families of the children in our classes. We are a friendly, knowledgeable group of people who love teaching in the early years, so please don’t be a stranger. 

Please check our page for regular posts about what we have been learning and to learn about how you can help at home. 

Autumn Term 2019


During this exciting first term in school, our main topic is ‘Ourselves’. This is a brilliant topic as it covers a plethora of activities across the seven areas of learning in the Early Years Development Matters framework and we will be learning lifelong skills such as, healthy diets, exercise, staying well through knowledge of essential self-care skills and how our bodies work. We will also be learning the names of the many parts of our bodies (do you know what the patella is?), that help us to breathe, move and grow! The programme on the BBC iPlayer, ‘Get Well Soon Hospital’ is a tremendous resource for teaching your child about staying happy and healthy.


We will learn about the beauty of the changing seasons (I would recommend watching the BBC series Autumnwatch together, it is consistently amazing) and wonderful festivals such as Harvest, Diwali and of course, Christmas. We will also learn about Remembrance Day, Bonfire Night and Black History Month. This term we will be asking the children the question "How can we keep hedgehogs safe in the autumn time?" and linking lots of our learning to this research!

We hope you will enjoy working together at home on your child’s home school reading books and their Rimrose Hope half termly challenge sheets. Rimrose Hope Christian values are decent, human values and shining a spotlight on these every half term will help your child grow as a person.

Thanks for your support, let’s make this a brilliant year.

Best wishes,

Mr Ward.
