Reception Baseline Assessment
From September 2021, the Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA) is statutory for all schools. It is a short, interactive and practical assessment of your child’s early literacy, communication, language and mathematics skills when they begin school, using materials that most children of your child’s age will be familiar with. Please click here to read an Information for Parents guide.
Reading daily is one of the most important things you can do with your child. If you run out of books to read, you can access a large range of free books online at Oxford Owls.

‘Gerald the Giraffe’ Words – These are sets of words taken from the ‘100 high frequency words’ list and are given out within your child’s reading records. Please practise reading these words at home on sight with your child, as this will help to ‘build up’ their fluency when reading. Once your child is secure in Set 1, we will provide you with Set 2, Set 3 etc. Each child’s efforts will be celebrated in class. Please click the link below for a full list of the ‘Gerald Words’.
‘WOW Moment’ Cards – Please take the time to fill out a ‘WOW Moment’ card to share your children’s successes at home with us- no matter how big or small! We love celebrating the children’s achievements and enjoy spending time reading out these moments in class and congratulating one another. It may be that they did something that they may have found previously difficult, or they tried a new food, rode their bike for the first time, learned a new song, or baked a cake… it could be anything! Please stick your ‘WOW Moment’ cards into your exercise book. We can’t wait to hear all about them.
