Reception

The Early Years Curriculum supports the children’s’ emotional, social and academic development. At Boundary, we aim to provide a stimulating and exciting environment for the children to develop the early skills they need through a range of creative activities such as mark making, malleable, technology, constructing and building, exploring, problem-solving and physical development both inside and outside the classroom. These approaches help the children to develop independence, the skills of problem-solving and critical thinking. The children will be taught key skills in reading, writing and mathematics through child-initiated play and focused led activities.

 

Phonics

At Boundary, we teach phonics using a synthetic phonics programme to help children develop early literacy skills in reading and writing. We follow the structure of the DfES ‘letters and sounds’ document and also use resources from Jolly Phonics to support this. Jolly Phonics is a multi-sensory approach where each letter sound has an action and a song to go with it. The children learn to write the letter and then blend the sounds together for reading and segment them for writing.
