Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Daily structured sessions on phonics, writing, maths and our knowledge-rich topics ensure our EYFS children have the best start to their education at Oakington and give a solid foundation for the knowledge and understanding they will accrue over the seven years in primary. In EYFS, we also encourage child-initiated learning and continuous provision, enabling children to learn through play both indoors and outdoors all through the year.

Phonics is taught through Sounds Write, a systematic synthetic linguistics programme validated by the DFE.

To help support your child at home with their phonics, please click here to enrol on a free on-demand course which is designed to support parents to:

  • help your child take their first steps in reading and spelling;
  • understand how to help your child build, write and read simple cvc (consonant, vowel, consonant) words;
  • understand how to correct your child when they make a mistake in their reading or writing simple words;
  • have a basic understanding of how phonics works.
