Welcome to Reception

Welcome to Reception. We hope you had a lovely summer holiday. This term we will be focussing on settling in and getting the children used to reception. Our topic will be “Do you want to be friends?”.

The Reception staff are:

Robin Class: Cheryl Rozario and Kim Gray

Sparrow Class: Rachel Smyth and Helen Siddall

Wren Class: Kavita Dhani, Annabel Todd and Naina Kanwal.

You will also meet Mrs T, Mrs Plummer and Miss El-Ghitaoui.

We are always happy to meet with you, but please wait until the end of the day, as it is important that we are in class promptly each morning

Sparrows: sparrow@bedfont.hounslow.sch.uk

Cued Articulation

This is a system we use to support our teaching of phonics.  Children quickly become familiar with the signs and it helps them to remember the sounds. The link below explains how it works.



At Bedfont Primary School we follow a scheme called Letters and Sounds. There are several phases in which sounds are taught. Phases 2 and 3 are taught in Reception.

Phase 2 consists of 5 sets:

Set 1: s, a, t, p
Set 2: i, n, m, d
Set 3: g, o, c, k
Set 4: ck, e, u, r
Set 5: h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss

Phase 3:

Set 6: j, v, w, x

Set 7: y, z, zz, qu

Consonant digraphs: ch (chair), sh (shell), th (thumb and this), ng (sing)

Vowel digraphs: ai (rain), ee (meet), igh (light), oa (boat), oo (book and food), ar (park),

or (fork), ur (turn), ow (clown), oi (boil), ear (beard), air (fair), ure (pure), er (hammer)

We always welcome parents to our Come and play sessions, so please sign up if you would like to attend.
