“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go.”
We aim to develop a love of books and reading, along with reading skills that allow children to understand and enjoy a variety of texts.
Throughout our Nursery and School we share a wide variety of books with our children. In Nursery children have an opportunity to take home story sacks that contain a book and a variety of toys related to the story. They also take home a book to share twice a week.
Throughout Nursery and School we use Read Write Inc a system of synthetic phonics to teach phonic skills. From Reception we group children according to ability in order to tailor lessons to meet the needs of each group. Half an hour is spent learning phonics (letter sounds) as well as how to form the letters.
