Welcome to Reception
Welcome to the reception class section of the website!
Have a look at what we get up to in the youngest class of Broad Oak Primary School…
We are always working hard and having lots of fun with our teacher, Mrs Bentham and our teaching assistants, Mrs Lawless and Mrs Allen.
A few useful documents for our new starters in September 2022!

Meeting Our Buddies!
The children loved meeting their buddies from year 5. It was lovely to watch them chatting and enjoying a story being read to them. So many happy faces and new friendships being made. The year 5 children were fantastic with our little ones!
We look forward to seeing our buddies around school and can't wait for their next visit!
All About Me!
Check out our amazing class display!
We have loved getting to know all about our new, little additions at Broad Oak. After enjoying our story 'All Are Welcome' we discussed and celebrated our differences. We talked about different skin tones and how we are all unique. The children used their painting skills to create representations of themselves and did some super name writing to go with their picture. We are very proud of how well they are all settling in and enjoying Reception life.

Read Write Inc. Phonics
Children in our Reception class enjoy taking part in a daily RWI phonics session each morning. During these focussed sessions, your child will develop skills that will help them to begin reading and writing.
Learning to read is the most important thing your child will learn at our school. Everything else depends on it, so we do all we can to make sure every child learns to read quickly. We want your child to love reading – and to want to read for themselves.
Below are some useful videos and documents covering the sounds your child will learn this year, how we teach blending to read, segmenting to spell and some example ‘Fred Talk’ games to play at home! Visit https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/ for more information and helpful videos.
