"Children get off to a strong start in the Reception Year. From starting points that are generally as expected for their age, children attain standards that are usually a little above average by the time they transfer to Year 1. Last year, children did particularly well in developing their early reading skills. Current Reception children have a good understanding of the sounds that letters make and how these are applied in reading and spelling simple words."
