Please check back weekly to see what Reception have been up to as they love to share their learning journey!


Phonics is an important part of your child's learning in the first few years of school. At St Austin's we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme. To support your understanding of this we have put together lots of information and videos on our English page to help guide you step by step through your child's phonics journey.  Please follow the link below: 


We are very lucky to have all of your children's fantastic achievements from school on Tapestry already.  Please continue to use it to share how your child is continuing to blossom, we would love to see it!

If you are struggling to access Tapestry please contact us and we can sort it for you, other wise here is some more guidance on how to add photos or comments.
