This class, which is for children who will be joining Reception the September of the following year, sees them embarking on the exciting learning journey that never really ends. Unlike other schools in the area, at Riddlesworth Hall we run a phonics programme that turns the traditional teaching methods on their heads. Anima Phonics teaches children to blend sounds from the off and our results thus far have been spectacular. At the same time as having huge fun with this programme, the children learn to read more quickly than their peers and gain a strong foundation on which to build as they move up the school. Pre-R is still about having fun though and children fill their days with role play, adventure and outside play.
