How to get to Reception




 Phonics in Reception



At Greenleaf, we use Little Wandle phonics teaching programme. 

Weekly activities on Google Classroom will be closely linked to the Little Wandle phonics learning at school. Helping your child to complete these, and reading the books in their Book Bag, will support them with reading.
