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

We've been working hard and having lots of fun with our teacher, Mrs Williams and our teaching assistants, Mrs Lawless and Miss Chambers.

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

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 for more information and helpful videos.
