Year R Curriculum

In Reception, we follow the DfE synthetic phonics programme ‘Letters and Sounds’ in Phonics, and complement this with Jolly Phonics actions. Our Maths planning is based on lessons from Hamilton Trust, and we also use ‘Talk 4 Writing’ to develop our spoken language and encourage a love of stories.

We work towards the Early Learning Goals (ELGs), which we aim to reach by the summer term. You can find a summary of these here, along with some activities to support your child at home.

Below you can find a snapshot of the topics we cover across the year, and some of our favourite activities within each half-term.
