Here are the key books we study in class in Reception. Below, you can click the document to find out more about how and why we use these books.

Autumn 1


During our literacy sessions we engage in fun activities and games to encourage our young learners to explore well-known stories and practise fundamental reading skills. Introducing our reception children to the joy of reading is essential in encouraging an early engagement with books, as well as confidence in both reading and writing on their own.


Take a look at reception learning all about 'The Little Red Hen'.

Autumn 2


This half term we have introduced reading buddies to our reading area. The buddies love being read to and the children have been enjoying sharing celebration books with them. We have Max the dog, Daphne the dog, Gereldene the giraffe and the twins Barney and Bruce the bears.


We now have book reviews in our reading area which the children have been enjoying filling in. They have been recommending books they've enjoyed to their friends.


We have also been reading detectives looking for reception high frequency words in the stories.
