Reading in Reception
We continue the love of story in Reception by sharing high-quality texts daily as a class and revisiting them to acquire more vocabulary and become confident in storytelling. We actively promote times where children can talk about their personal experiences and the frequent birthday book gifts ensure that books maintain a high profile. Around the learning environment, there are opportunities for reading in every area and each child has a small group guided reading session once a week. We are very fortunate that our parent body is so supportive, with parental volunteers coming in to hear each child read once a week. Our flipcharts are clear and attractive ensuring children can practise their sound and word recognition skills whenever there is a teacher led input.
