    Assessment

     From September 2021 there are 2 statutory assessments that have to be undertaken in Reception year. Neither assessment is a test.

     The Reception Baseline Assessment is a check of each child's early literacy, communication, language and maths skills, which takes the form of a set of practical tasks carried out

     between the child and the teacher within the first 6 weeks of starting. Children’s results are then sent to the government Standards and Testing agency. The results are not shared with

     the school, except for a short narrative statement to describe how each pupil performed on the overall assessment.

    The Early Years Foundation Stage Profile is a summary of each child's attainment at the end of the Reception year based on what they have demonstrated they know, understand and

     can do in all Prime areas of learning, literacy and maths, against the ‘Early Learning Goals’. Attainment for each area is described as either meeting the level of development at the end

     of the EYFS (expected) or not yet reaching this level (emerging).

 

     Please click on the link below to see the Early Learning Goals

Phonics

Phonics will be taught using a programme called Little Wandle.

"Little Wandle Letters and Sounds is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) developed for schools by schools. Based on the original Letters and Sounds, but extensively revised to provide a complete teaching programme meeting all the expectations of the National Curriculum, the Ofsted Deep Dive into reading and preparing your children to go beyond the expectations of the Phonics Screening Check". 

Find our full Reception and Year 1 teaching programme overview here to see what your child will learn and when. Please also refer to the  Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised parents’ resources for more information.

As your child progresses through this programme links will be added so that you, as parents and carers, can support and extend your child's learning at home.
