Red Ditty Books in Reception

Our Reception children have been working hard this term; learning to read their first Red Ditty books and write about the stories they have read.

They’ve been learning to teach and support each other with the help of their ‘stick of power’. We are really impressed with their enthusiasm and confidence that they show in the RWI sessions!

Well done for all your hard work Reception 🙂
