Welcome to Reception


Welcome to our section of the website.

Have a look at what we get up to in the youngest class of Broad Oak Primary School…

working hard with our teacher, Mrs Williams  and our teaching assistants, Mrs Lawless and Miss Chambers.

Read Write Inc. Phonics

Now that your child has started Reception class, they will be taking part in a daily 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 for more information and helpful videos.

Our Photo Gallery


Please enjoy some of the photographs of the fun we've been having in our reception class...

Our last day in reception! We had so much fun at our beach party and we hope you all have a wonderful summer!

Our Amazing BOMPS celebrated their success with a fantastic go on the climbing wall! Well done everyone, you have worked so hard this year!

We have really enjoyed learning some super football skills during the Euros! The children had a great time learning how to dribble, pass and shoot!

Fire Service Visit


The fire service came to visit our infant children this week– it was very exciting and everyone learned a lot.

More 'Dotty' Fun In Reception

Dot Day In Reception

We had lots of fun on International Dot Day. We made dotty shapes in the Playdough and painted dotty circles and pictures.

We are loving our first week at 'big school'! There are so many new things for us to try.

We are very pleased to say that the Reception children who started today have settled in really well and there have been happy faces all round.

Take a look at what we have been up to so far.


Today was the first day of school for some of our Reception class children and as you can see from the pictures, there were happy faces all round.
