Dragon Class is our first class. There are twenty reception pupils and ten pupils from Year 1.
Children in Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and children in Year 1 follow Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum. We combine this learning in a learning map for each year and operate a rolling cycle of annual planning so that children do not repeat their learning focus.

Phonics and Reading
We teach phonics in the Early Years and Key Stage 1 through ‘Letters and Sounds’ using a synthetic phonics approach. We use ‘Book Bands’ to organise a range of reading materials for children learning to read. In the Early Years Foundation Stage these are based around Oxford Reading Tree as a core scheme.
