Welcome to Reception

We have an exciting time ahead of us as the children begin their Moorhill Journey. We will learn new routines, make new friends and have many adventures.

In Reception we teach Phonics through Ruth Miskin's Read, Write, Inc (RWI).

Click on the buttons to find out more about how we teach RWI at school and how you can help at home.

Sound Blending
Reading with the Digraphs
Top tips from Ruth Miskin
Once we have learnt all the sounds your child will bring a book home to share with you. We use the Boom Reader app to log your child's reading. Make sure you download the app and sign in with the details given by school. It is important to listen to your child read on a daily basis and for them to repeat the same texts over again, as this builds up their blending skills.

We use Class Dojo as a way to communicate with families. We will post general messages to Class Story and individual things to each child's Portfolio. Remember to check daily on our Class Dojo page for updates on your child's learning and ways to support at home.

We will use stories as hooks from which to base our learning, including:
