Reading books

In nursery all children were read to at least once a day as a whole class activity.  As well as this children were freely able to access books in a variety of play areas and in our well stocked class libraries and in our outdoor learning environment.   At home, young children love to look at books and browse the pages even from a young age. We are able to teach them how to look after books, that print has meaning and that the pictures and the print are connected. We will be continuing to post stories online for you and your child to listen to at home.  We are also encouraging you to read to your child daily as previously discussed at our Getting Ready to Learn events. The library service and book trust both have a great range of books to borrow and they also have other fabulous resources that can be used with young children.  See below:
