Reception Next Steps meeting slides

Thank you to all parents who attended Friday’s Reception Next Steps meeting.

We really value our partnerships with parents and this home-school contact is very important to us.

We hope you found the meeting useful and informative. Below is a link to the presentation slides and links to phonics videos which you can use to support your child’s reading at home.

If you have any queries, please see your child’s class teacher.


Presentation slides can be found here:
