Early Reading

As parents and carers, you have the biggest influence over your child's early reading development.

The teaching of reading starts from birth!  You can instill a love of books in your children by playing with sounds and words, rhyming, reading to your child and sharing books with them from a very early age.

When children first come into school in EYFS1 or 2, (pre-school & Reception), we build on the skills they already have to develop their reading.

We continue to read to children and share books with them on a regular basis in addition to using phonics to teach the mechanics of reading.

The Government states that all primary schools must follow a highly structured, progressive phonics framework for the teaching of reading, with the emphasis being on phonics.
